Têtu : determined, steadfast, headstrong. With their eighth album, Le Vent du Nord hold to a steady course staying faithful to their Québecois roots while at the same time taking an unyielding approach to innovative new ideas. The new opus contains 15 tracks covering politics, love, and satire. From stripped-down a cappella singing to sophisticated arrangements including a string quartet, Le Vent du Nord’s music is getting sharper, more refined, and ever more thoughtful. An album that buzzes with heavy grooves while leaving room for good times, smiles and honesty.

Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind) is a Canadian folk music group from chelieu in Quebec. The band performs traditional Québécois music (which is heavily influenced by Celtic music from both Ireland and Brittany), as well as original numbers in this style, in French.

Le Vent du Nord must melt the snow in their native Quebec. Led by twin fiddles and hurdy-gurdy, driven by incessantly rattling foot percussion, the quintet’s unbridled energy rarely let up in this Light on the Shore concert.

  • If you associate the North Wind only with cold air, open your ears. Le Vent du Nord, the four-man vanguard of the Québec folk scene, offers the sounds of melodeon and hurdy-gurdy, assorted strings (violin, bouzouki, guitar), rhythmic foot stomping and stirring vocal harmonies. "Têtu" (Headstrong), the band’s eighth album, is a dazzling 15-track collection of original and traditional songs at turns rollicking and sad, fanciful and forlorn—and consistently beautiful. "Confédération" is a self-deprecating cri de coeur over Canadian history); the refrain, “Why don’t the Francophones remember?” refers to several nineteenth-century episodes that impacted French rights. The song is also so exuberant it is likely to appeal to even the most ardent federalist. At the other end of the spectrum is "Petite rêve IX," one of the album’s five instrumental tracks. Haunting and short, it’s a prelude to "Pauvre enfant" (Poor Child), an achingly magnificent orphan’s lament, perfectly suspended between pathos and forced joy, never slipping into either. Among many other unforgettable songs are two ballads, "Le Rosier" (The Rose) and "L’échafaud" (The Scaffold), about men who risk everything for love, and the protest saga Forillon, about a heavy-handed land expropriation in Gaspé. Out of personal and collective travails, Le Vent du Nord has woven an irresistible musical tapestry strong enough to redefine the coldest wind.
