Reviews

“There must be few souls alive who could resist Le Vent du Nord’s boundless joie de vivre... a jubilant maelstrom of prodigiously bouncy dance-tunes... hurdy-gurdy, accordion, bouzouki, piano, jaw-harp, guitar and electric bass, garlanded with lustily compelling five-part vocals.”

Orkney Festival

“Quant aux qualités musicales de ces formidables artistes, elles ne soulèvent pas le milligramme d’un doute. Le choix des références, les actualisations, les réformes, l’innovation, la qualité de l’exécution.”

Alain Brunet, La Presse.ca

“Ordinarily, two hours of music in a language peoples doesn’t understand might be tedious, but LVDN is anything but tedious.”
