In 2008, the Beaumier Center presented a concert by Quebec’s preeminent folk group, Le Vent Du Nord, and it was wildly successful. The group proved to be equally popular when they headlined the Hiawatha Traditional Folk Festival in 2011. The Beaumier Center is very excited to announce that Le Vent Du Nord will be returning to Marquette in April to perform a special concert at Kaufman Auditorium.
Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Le Vent du Nord captures the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Québec with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air.
Since its founding in 2002, Le Vent du Nord have become compelling Francophone ambassadors, winning critical acclaim and audience adoration across Europe, Oceania and America. The quartet has performed well over 1,600 concerts, racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), 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 has a rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals.
