Combining a joyful, fun stage presence with energetic, dynamic flair, Le Vent du Nord delights audiences with their glorious mix of fiddle and foot-tapping, guitar, accordion, piano, bass, hurdy-gurdy and wonderful four-part harmonies.

Since its formation in 2002 the band has performed over 2,000 concerts across four continents and released ten highly praised albums, most recently Territoires in 2019.
