Le Vent du Nord

 

We're excited to host the French-Canadian supergroup Le Vent du Nord for the first show of our first Virtual Season! Join us for a LIVE streamed concert, including Q&A with the band at intermission.

SFMS has hosted Le Vent du Nord several times over their 18-year history, and loved them every time. Their dynamic live performances expand the bounds of tradition in striking global directions. This is the modern sound of tradition, a music of the here and now.

It will be some time until they can leave their native Québec, so we have teamed up with them for a special concert, broadcast LIVE from Centre Culturel de Joliette, Québec, using a multi-camera system with exceptional lighting and sound. Our friends at the Cultural Alliance in Baltimore, MD will also be watching the show.

Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement. They add a global spice to the joyous and soulful Celtic-rooted music of eastern Canada. Nicolas Boulerice's hurdy-gurdy “adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor” to the fiddles of Olivier Demers and André Brunet, underpinned by Réjean Brunet's accordion and Simon Beaudry's solid string foundation.
