Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed meteoric success. The band has received several prestigious awards, including a Juno, and is now one of the most-loved Quebec folk outfits throughout the world. The current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers, and Réjean Brunet. Some songs come from traditional folk repertoire, while others are original compositions. On stage, these four friends achieve peaks of happiness that they eagerly share with any and all audiences. Le Vend du Nord knows how to deliver music that will move any crowd – to their feet and in their hearts! 

The quartet Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in the province’s progressive folk movement, and they leaven their hard-driving soulful music (a close cousin to Celtic music) with New Orleans polyphony and R&B. Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes. -- Boston Herald
