The award winning and highly acclaimed Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Québec’s progressive francophone folk movement.

The group exhibits great finesse and flexibility, appearing regularly on Canadian, American, French, and UK television and radio, and participating in a wide variety of special musical projects. They’ve collaborated and performed with a diverse range of artists including: Väsen, Sharon Shannon, Harry Manx, singer Julie Fowlis, Dervish, The Chieftains, Yann-Fañch Kemener, Québécois roots legend and master storyteller Michel Faubert, Apiary fiddle band, Breabach and many more.

Not content with standard approaches to tradition, Le Vent du Nord has also created since 2007 a symphonic concert that, according to Voir Montreal, “puts all traditional folk naysayers to shame.”

Whether traditional or original, the music is deftly played with crisp call-and-response vocals and warm-bath harmonies (…) 20 Printemps is the musical equivalent of a theatre’s there is no bad seat in the house with nary a weak tune in the lot”. - SONGLINES MAGAZINE, Li Robbins (UK) April 2023

“With their track records, energy and vision, the boys have at least another 20 years in them. And god knows Quebec will give them the space”. - WORLD LISTENNING POST (NYC) April 2022
