Playing original and traditional music based on Acadian traditions from the west of Prince Edward Island, where twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc have generational roots, and the Magdalen Islands, home to Pascal Miousse, an heir to the Islands’ spectacular fiddling heritage, Vishtèn is widely regarded as the finest Acadian music band touring today. Their powerhouse music is a celebration of their Acadian roots and an embracing of Celtic and Maritime folk music traditions and newer sounds. The result is a brilliantly-executed repertoire of songs and multi-instrumental numbers full of driving, multi-layered percussion, tight harmonies – and Acadian fiddle tunes so dazzling, you’ll be hooked in a heartbeat.
