Le Vent du Nord Bring the Music of Quebec to The Met

Le Vent Du Nord return to The Met on Friday 20 May at 8pm with their unique take on the music of Quebec.

The band have been enjoying rocketing, award winning success for a number of years. The group\’s current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers, and Rejean Brunet. With fiddle, guitar, accordion, bass/hurdygurdy and vocal, they sing both original songs and those taken from the traditional repertoire in their native French.

Le Vent du Nord\’s music is both fresh and bound to French Canadian tradition, but perhaps their greatest strength is an unmistakable stage presence: energetic, dynamic and generous, in touch with their audience and sure to delight them.

In 2005 they were named North American Trad Artist of the Year, and have twice won Best Canadian Folk Album. Le Vend du Nord know how to deliver music that will move any crowd – to their feet and in their hearts!

\”Le Vent du Nord are one of the hippest exponents of Quebecois music. The quartet coaxed the crowd on to their feet.\” The Scotsman

Tickets for the event are £14, £10 concessions or £5 if you\’re under 26. To book phone the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go online www.themet.biz
