Celtic Connections 2020

Always a hugely popular draw, today’s leading champions of Québécois folk music Le Vent du Nord return to Glasgow for their biggest Celtic Connections show yet, a sumptuous and exhilarating live reworking and updating of their 2010 album Symphonique, featuring the band with full-scale orchestral accompaniment. Triumphantly bridging the divide between the traditional and classical realms, 17 Vent du Nord tracks have been specially arranged by leading US composer Tom Myron, deploying the orchestra – here comprising a hand-picked Scottish folk/classical ensemble, led by conductor Greg Lawson – almost as a sixth member of the line-up. Since Symphonique’s release, Le Vent du Nord have continued to go from strength to strength, latterly expanding from a quartet to a five-piece with the addition of André Brunet, and winning yet more rave reviews for their 2019 release Territoires. “A pre-eminent force in their field” (FRUK)
