Dans Les Airs [CD]

Dans Les Airs by Le Vent du Nord

I picked up this CD because of the album cover—I was intrigued because one of the band members was shown playing the hurdy gurdy. As it turns out, there is some great hurdy gurdy playing, but there is much more: wonderful vocal harmonies, great fiddling, Québécois foot percussion, and always infectious melodies and driving rhythms. A great album.

  1. I got to see them live a few years ago and couldn't help but start toe tapping.
