Le Vent Du Nord

Le_Vent_Du_Nord.jpg

Le Vent du Nord is in Sisseton this week as a part of an Arts Midwest World Fest Program tour connecting small and medium-sized communities in the American Midwest to cultures of the world.  They’ll give a concert at the Sisseton Performing Arts Council Friday at 7:00 p.m. 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 and North America.  The quartet has performed well over 1,000 concerts, racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and 'Artist of the Year' at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.  Learn more at www.leventdunord.com.
