Le Vent du Nord

Seventeen years after its inception, the award-winning and highly acclaimed band Le Vent du Nord has increased in size from a quartet to a quintet! Fiddler André Brunet (Celtic Fiddle Festival, La Bottine Souriante) has joined this world renowned ensemble along with Simon Beaudry (vocals, bouzouki, guitar), Nicolas Boulerice (vocals, hurdy-gurdy, piano), Olivier Demers (fiddle, guitar, foot-tapping, mandolin), and Réjean Brunet (basses, accordion, jaw harp, vocals). Making their Blackstone River Theatre debut, Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement and an iconic name in Quebec’s traditional music revival. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing it’s hard-driving soulful music with a broad range of global influences. Le Vent du Nord has performed well over 1,800 concerts over 5 continents and racked up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), and a CFMA & “Artist of the Year” at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.
