Le Vent du Nord

Montréal, Québec

Hugely successful Quebec folk band Le Vent du Nord is renowned as an unmatched ambassador of the Francophonie, and acknowledged as an influential force and key player in Quebec’s traditional folk music revival. Since the group’s founding in 2002, the band has racked up several prestigious awards, including 2 JUNOS, 2 Canadian Folk Music Awards, 1 Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros (France) and Artist of the Year at the Folk Alliance International’s Annual Gala (Texas). Along with their terrific musicianship, Le Vent du Nord have brilliantly connected Quebecois musical tradition to a larger musical world. Despite a frenetic live schedule over the last decade (more than 1400 concerts across North America and Europe), the band is touring with their latest show, Tromper le Temps, to audiences far and wide. Standby for fantastic new music with warm humour and bonhomie.
