Event has passed

    WALDOBORO — Le Vent du Nord will perform at The Waldo on Thursday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m.

    Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement, according to The Waldo, in a news release. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing it’s hard-driving soulful music (rooted in the Celtic diaspora) with a broad range of global influences.

    “Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes,” said the Boston Herald.

    Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed meteoric success, performing well over 2,000 concerts over 4 continents and racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), a Félix at ADISQ, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and “Artist of the Year” at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.

    “On stage these five musicians create intense, joyful and dynamic live performances that expand the bounds of tradition in striking global directions,” said the Waldo. “This is the modern sound of tradition, a music of the here and now.”

    General admission tickets are available for $30 in advance and $35 the day of the event. If this show is not sold out, tickets are available at the box office starting at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and concessions will be available for purchase.


    This vibrant, beautifully restored 1936 theatre serves as a local cultural hub offering theater, music, film, and a wide array of performing arts to our Midcoast community. Through programs like youth arts education, after-school activities, master classes, workshops, and other events, The Waldo seeks to expand arts participation for residents of all ages and enhance the quality of life for all.
