Returning to Montana for the first time since their 2008 appearance at the National Folk Festival in Butte, Le Vent du Nord is known for exquisite musicianship, Quebecoise culture and infectious tunes that set toes tapping.
Since its inception in 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed a meteoric rise. The group is the recipient of many prestigious awards - including two JUNO awards. The quartet is now one of Quebec's most popular traditional groups. Made up of singers and multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers and Réjean Brunet, the group will perform a concert based on the 2012 album, Tromper le temps, which returns to its Quebec roots while providing a glimpse of tomorrow.
Tickets are $22 general admission and $17 for students and are available on the Ticket River website, https://www.ticketriver.com/event/4748-le-vent-du-nord
