OVERVIEW / SURVOL
An unforgettable, foot-stomping event of approximately two hours, Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind) has performed all across Canada, capturing its highest awards and honors for a modern traditional sound from Quebec that leaves no pair of shoes flat on the floor for long. They've been in 15 European countries. They are one of the most-loved Quebec folk groups throughout the world. Check out their web site for more info.
