Festival schedule

Not only considered an incomparable French-language ambassador, Le Vent du Nord is a driving force behind Quebec’s progressive folk movement, as well as a flagship band in the revival of traditional Quebec music. Since its founding in 2002, it has enjoyed a meteoric rise that never ceases to amaze!

The group performs works from the traditional repertoire as well as original compositions. His qualities as a performer, arranger and composer, as well as his strong stage presence and profound generosity, are now recognized worldwide.

He has performed over 2000 concerts on 4 continents, released 12 albums and been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including a GRAND PRIX DU DISQUE CHARLES CROS (France), two JUNO AWARDS (Canada), two Prix de Musique Folk Canadienne, and three FÉLIX at ADISQ (Quebec). He was named ARTIST OF THE YEAR at the Folk Alliance International Conference (2006) and was the first recipient of the PRIX PONT TRANSATLANTIQUE (2015) jointly awarded by the international organizations BabelMed (France) and Mundial Montréal (Quebec).

After 22 years on the road, the band is now made up of singers and multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, André Brunet, Réjean Brunet, Olivier Demers and André Gagné.
