Before you buy tickets: you must either be COVid-19 vaccinated and show your card to get in OR show a negative COVid test within 3 days of the concert (October 6 on) to get in. We will check for your card or test result at the show! So if you are unvaccinated OR refuse to take a test, please do not bother buying a ticket or tickets! We will refund any without the above.
From French-Canada, Le Vent du Nord (Wind of the North) is the most accomplished of the French- Canadian bands and one of the few that feature hurdy-gurdy playing along with the full range of instruments, lots of foot percussion, and vocals in French. For this--their first performance in Tucson--we have them at the acoustically perfect Berger Performing Arts Center. Two notes: Le Vent's lead fiddler, Andre Brunet, switched over from playing with the band La Bottine Souriante (Smiling Boot) who are no longer touring. Note: The first video is one of their signature songs, and does add a couple from Quebec on vocals only. Note 2:-Le Vent du Nord tours extensively-- Much varied video can be seen on youtube, including acapella songs (in French of course) to fine instrumentals. More video of Le Vent's music to be added here as show approaches--we just added a few videos on September 17th...
All reserved seating. No social distancing needed in the Berger Center. $25; $23 seniors $3/ticket fee online. Tickets at the door will be $28 or $26 for seniors---so buying on line now gets you seats of your choice and at same price as door tickets....

The Posse is led by Pete Sutherland, on fiddle, vocals and keyboards.
From Vermont, Pete is one of the country's best fiddlers. Pete now is also a songwriter and song interpreter. His trio includes two excellent players on guitar and mandolin and all three of them sing. Also they add excellent foot percussion, sometimes with two fiddles and feet. Their show combines songs and sets of energetic fiddle tunes. Both an instrumental audio of French-Canadian tunes, and an instrumental video is on site. Their song on this site, "The Floods of 2019," is an updated version of an older song about floods complete with photos of recent flooding around the world.
“…(a) kaleidoscope of sounds and styles with equal parts amiability and energy… crossing genres sometimes within one song or tune set, devising thoughtful, elaborate arrangements, and adding their own compositions, which fit snugly into the mix.” - The Boston Irish Reporter
“These three guys took us into their musical universe; sometimes very energetic, sometimes very poetic and touching. Beauty for the soul.” - - André Marchand, musician, QC, CAN

Opening at 7:00pm: Matt Rolland on fiddle is joined by Freddy Parish on guitar, banjo, and vocals for a set of old-time music and original instrumentals. Matt Rolland from Tucson has had a fiddle in his hand since the age of four. Best known as the bandleader and fiddle player for the Tucson-based band, Run Boy Run, Matt has performed at festivals and concert halls across the country, released six studio albums and was twice featured on American Public Media’s popular radio show, “A Prairie Home Companion.” Matt's most recent release includes a co-produced pair of singles with his wife and musical partner, Rebekah Rolland, "Mary / Louise" which are available for streaming online. Matt is a talented multi-instrumentalist. He is joined by Freddy Parish, a Tucson-based singer/songwriter performing original songs and traditional tunes in a neo-traditional folk and country style. Parish released an EP in 2018 called "Last Chance" of traditional songs and is currently recording a new album of original country inspired songs.
