Celtic Fest favorites
, November 24, 2003
I do not have this CD yet, but I'm sure getting it! This very fun new/old-time group was well liked by the overflow crowd who found their tent at the 2003 Chicago Celtic Fest. Most musical and most fun group of the festival in my opinion.
If you have heard La Bottine Souriante, well here is another cool trad French Canadian band, with maybe even more energy.
You can here a sample and read more about Le Vent du Nord
at the BorealisRecords web site.
[Update] After I wrote the above, I did indeed buy the CD, and I am happy with it. I should clarify one point: Le Vent du Nord has a traditional sound, not very similar to recent work from La Bottine Souriante. When I wrote the review above, I was thinking of early LBS, before they added horns.
