Riverbank Arts Centre
The incredible French-Canadian folk super group De Temps Antan have captured the hearts of audiences across the globe with their stunning interpretations of time-honoured melodies from Quebec's musical past. Driven by the stomping "tac-tic-a-tac" of "les pieds" (a type of clog), their rough-hewn sound is an utterly infectious mix of boundless energy and joie de vivre.
Eric Beaudry, voice, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki
David Boulanger, voice, fiddle
Pierre-Luc Dupuis, voice, accordion, harmonica, jaw's harp
Three powerful vocals combine to create joyous harmonies - the music may be acoustic, but the results are electric!
The group's live shows are dosed with catchy honkytonk tunes, uncontrolled laughter, and sudden, impromptu shifts in rhythm and harmony - so expect the unexpected!
"World-class performers" - The Guardian
"De Temps Antan combine the best of new and old Quebec, highly recommended" - Folkworld
"They have enough power to drive a nuclear furnace." - Folkwords
