Canadian folk group headed to DeKalb

Canadian folk group Le Vent du Nord will perform Jan. 18 in DeKalb.

Arts Midwest of DeKalb County will welcome Canadian folk group Le Vent du Nord to DeKalb High School on Jan. 18.

Traditional Quebecois music is heavily influenced by Celtic and French romantic styles. Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord is blazing a path that connects their Quebecois roots to the wider world, in both arrangements and on stage. Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Le Vent du Nord captures the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Quebec with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air.

Since its founding in 2002, Le Vent du Nord has won critical acclaim and audience adoration across Europe and North America. The quartet has performed well over 1,000 concerts and racked up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canadian Grammys), a Canadian Folk Music Award, and Artist of the Year  at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.

The four-member band plays a variety of instruments, including hurdy-gurdy, piano accordion, piano, fiddle, guitar, Irish bouzouki, button accordion, acoustic bass guitar and jaw harp; all four members also sing.

The concert is at 7 p.m. Jan. 18 in the DeKalb High School auditorium. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students, and are available at the door.
