The award win­ning and high­ly acclaimed band Le Vent du Nord are a lead­ing force in Québec’s excit­ing and pro­gres­sive Fran­coph­o­ne folk move­ment. The group’s vast reper­toire draws from both tra­di­tion­al sources and orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions, while their high­ly rhyth­mic and soul­ful music, root­ed in the Celtic dias­po­ra, is enhanced with a broad range of glob­al influ­ences. Since first launch­ing in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord have enjoyed mete­oric suc­cess, per­form­ing well over 2,000 con­certs over 4 con­ti­nents and rack­ing up sev­er­al pres­ti­gious awards, includ­ing a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Gram­mys), a Félix at ADISQ, a Cana­di­an Folk Music Award, and Artist of the Year” at Folk Alliance Annu­al Gala. 

The group reg­u­lar­ly appear on Cana­di­an, Amer­i­can, French, and UK tele­vi­sion and radio and have par­tic­i­pat­ed in a wide vari­ety of spe­cial musi­cal projects that exhib­it their great finesse and flex­i­bil­i­ty. They’ve col­lab­o­rat­ed and per­formed with a diverse range of artists includ­ing: Har­ry Manx, Väsen, Dervish, The Chief­tains, Bre­ton musi­cal pio­neer Yann-Fañch Kemen­er, Québé­cois roots leg­end and mas­ter sto­ry­teller Michel Faubert, the Scot­tish folk band Bre­abach, Gael­ic singer Julie Fowlis, and the trans-Mediter­ranean ensem­ble Con­stan­tino­ple. Le Vent du Nord look beyond the stan­dard approach­es to tra­di­tion in their col­lab­o­ra­tions and they’ve also cre­at­ed a sym­phon­ic con­cert that, accord­ing to Voir Mon­tréal, puts all tra­di­tion­al folk naysay­ers to shame.” On stage these five friends [add their names in here?] cre­ate intense, joy­ful and dynam­ic live per­for­mances that expand the bounds of tra­di­tion in strik­ing glob­al direc­tions. This is the mod­ern sound of tra­di­tion, a music of the here and now.
