Le Vent du Nord and Breabach

The gig I went to see at the Strathclyde Suite was headlined by Quebecois band Le Vent du Nord (‘The North Wind’) who featured here this time last year as I saw them supporting La Bottine Souriante, also at Celtic Connections. The support act was Scottish band Breabach. Actually though in both halves the two bands came and played together – this was taken towards the end of the show, and although not a great photo (I was too far back, this is the least bad photo!) it was a great gig, we thoroughly enjoyed it. They are touring together around Scotland at the moment and Quebec later this year – catch them if you can!

This blog is going to take a wee break-ette – I’ll be back with more photos in mid-Feb! 🙂

Le Vent du Nord

The first support act (of two) that I saw at last Thursday’s Celtic Connections concert at the Royal Concert Hall was this band from Quebec, called Le Vent du Nord (‘The North Wind’). They were absolutely fantastic – they had the audience on their feet, and their energy was infectious. You can see some footage of them from their website here (check out what the fiddle player is doing with his feet – talk about multi-tasking!).
