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. And, for this, their first performance in Tucson--we have them at the Temple of Music and Art downtown! 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 2: The first of the two videos has 4 of the 5 members who will be here--without Andre Brunet, and the second of the videos is one of their signature songs, and does add a couple from Quebec on vocals only--it had the best sound quality.
All reserved seating $24; $22 seniors and TFTM members. $3/ticket online fee.

The Byrne Brothers is actually a family band--the father plays guitar back-up and sings, the kids play tunes and bodhran. And, the two older brothers are award-winning Irish step dancers.!! If you watch the video please keep it going--at the end the two older brothers dance... + not only that, their mother does the sound..
We are having the show at the 200 seat Catalyst--a new Makerspace at Tucson Mall--closest to the Sears, between Sears and Dillard's. Acoustics at Catalyst are fine as there is a stage and a cloth backdrop.

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.
