Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord is blazing a path that connects their roots to the wider world. On stage, these four friends achieve peaks of happiness that they eagerly share with their audiences. Winning critical acclaim and audience adoration across the country, the quartet has earned several prestigious awards including two Juno's and a Canadian Folk Music Award. The group has a rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals. They have collaborated and performed with Harry Manx, Väsen, The Chieftains, Breton musical pioneer Yann-Fañch Kemener, Québecois roots legend and master storyteller Michel Faubert, hip Scottish folk band Breabach, and the trans-Mediterranean ensemble Constantinople. The group’s current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers and Réjean Brunet. “Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes.” -Boston Herald
