Award-winning and highly-acclaimed, Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Québec’s progressive francophone folk movement.

The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing its hard-driving soulful music with a broad range of global influences.

Since forming in 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed meteoric success, performing well over 1,800 concerts across 5 continents, and racking up several prestigious awards including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), a Félix at ADISQ, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and “Artist of the Year” at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.

The group exhibits great finesse and flexibility, appearing regularly on Canadian, American, French, and UK television and radio, and participating in a wide variety of special musical projects.
They’ve collaborated and performed with a diverse range of artists including Dervish, The Chieftains, Väsen, Breabach, and Julie Fowlis.

Not content with standard approaches to tradition, Le Vent du Nord has also created a symphonic concert that, according to Voir Montreal, “puts all traditional folk naysayers to shame.”

An amazing live act, Le Vent du Nord continues to explore new sounds with stunning vocal arrangements. On stage these five friends create intense, joyful, and dynamic live performances that expand the bounds of tradition in striking directions.

Le Vent du Nord is Simon Beaudry (vocals, bouzouki, guitar), Nicolas Boulerice (vocals, electro acoustic hurdy-gurdy, piano), Réjean Brunet (basses, diatonic accordion, jaw harp, piano, vocals), Olivier Demers (fiddle, guitar, foot-tapping, mandolin, vocals), and André Brunet (fiddle, foot-tapping, vocals).
