Le Vent du Nord

  • Le Vent du Nord Slider Image

Ambassadors of French Canadian music, Le Vent du Nord has blazed a musical path of its own.  The band delivers catchy songs and tunes, some taken from Québec's traditional folk repertoire while others are original compositions. With a rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements and wonderful vocals which connect their Québecois roots to the wider world, Le Vent du Nord captures the energy and joy of a Saturday night kitchen party.

The band has received glowing critical acclaim, matched by a collection of awards and recognitions. It has been nominated for six Canadian Folk Music Awards, won a Canadian Grammy, and took home "Artist of the Year" at the North American Folk Alliance Gala. In 2012 they were inducted into the Order of the Porcupine Hall of Fame on popular Toronto radio show Back to the Sugar Camp!

Vivacious performers, Le Vent du Nord is sure to please all live music fans.

More information about La Vent du Nord is available on their website.
