“The audience had the heads bobbing and feet tapping from their first few powerful notes, and were in love with them all by the end. “ THE NELSON MA


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 group has a rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals.These four young men, versed in such unplugged instruments as the hurdy gurdy, bouzouki and something called a diatonic button accordion, have taken Celtic music filtered through the Québécois tradition and hopped it up with vitality and innovation”.- EUGENE WEEKLY (USA)

The group's membership currently consists of Nicolas Boulerice (vocals, hurdy-gurdy, piano accordion, piano), Olivier Demers (vocals, fiddle, foot-tapping and guitar), Simon Beaudry (guitar, bouzouki) and Réjean Brunet (accordion).
