Le Vent Du Nord in concert July 13, 2015

Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Le Vent du Nord captures the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Québec with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air. The group is blazing a path that connects their Québecois roots to the wider world. “Well-polished with wonderful vocals”

    Joyful, intelligent, varied musical experience full of new and interesting material very skillfully played. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    I attended this concert with my husband and our young daughter. We were made to feel very welcome. The seating area to the right was cosy and very comfortable. The auditorium was small (I think 75 of us were squeezed in there, plus the band!) but had nice tiered seating and the acoustics were great: the sound was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the concert: Le Vent du Nord is on top form at the moment and they played with their usual amount of happiness combined with superb musicianship. The whole evening was a joy. We had travelled a long way (250 miles!) to attend and were really surprised at finding such a lovely venue in what is a very scattered, rural community. If Le Vent du Nord ever play Lyth Arts Centre again, we would certainly consider another long drive! We heard later that the band had received a very high standard of hospitality from the venue, too. We also attended the LVDN gig at Melvich, the night after. It was also superb. Again, a wee community but treamendous that with co-operation and proper funding, these two venues were able to bring this wonderful, award-winning international act to Caithness and Sutherland. My only disappointment was the tour for the band did not extend to Tongue or Kilochbervie or somewhere as would have been the natural progression for their tour, before hitting Stornoway for HebCelt. Maybe next time?! Thanks for a wonderful evening (at both Lyth and Melvich) and I wish both venues all the best for the future.
