Adored by audiences worldwide, the Quebecois band LE VENT DU NORD is an inspirational force in progressive folk — capturing the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party.

Since its founding in 2002, Le Vent du Nord have become compelling Francophone ambassadors, winning critical acclaim and devoted fans across Europe, Oceania and America. The quartet has performed over 1,600 concerts, racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canadas Grammy’s), a Félix at ADISQ, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and Artist of the Year at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.

The band delivers catchy songs and tunes, some taken from the Québec traditional folk repertoire while others are original compositions. The group includes rich and varied instrumentation (fiddle, bouzouki, guitar, accordion, hurdy-gurdy), well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals.

Join us after the performance for a wine & cheese reception with the artists — and enjoy the beautiful tapestries on display in Ulrika Leander’s studio and gallery.

This program is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $7 for students, and are discounted for groups or those who request assistance. Space is limited. For tickets, visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2844738
