De Temps Antan (from Quebec!) , March 6th, Harrisburg

Dear Folk Music Fans,

I wanted to draw a little special attention to the upcoming De Temps Antan concert (this comingSunday, March 6th at 4 PM).

I’ve been making a lot of forays to festival in Quebec during the last dozen or so years, and have just fallen in love with the music there—it’s a refreshing and spirited blend of French and Irish, and so many of the bands (De Temps Antan especially) are very, very captivating on stage.

Additionally, De Temps Antan has one of the very best fiddle players that you’ll ever want to see. Andre Brunet. He is a pretty incredible force on stage, so unbelievably powerful and the music just flows right out of him!

I hope to see you on Sunday afternoon for a very special concert. I know that you won’t be disappointed!

De Temps AntanDe Temps Antan, hailed as Quebec’s most powerful trad trio, brings its high-powered rendition of time-honored melodies from the stomping grounds of the province’s musical past to Harrisburg on Sunday, March 6, for a 4 p.m. Susquehanna Folk Music Society matinee concert at the Appalachian Brewing Company’s Abbey Bar, 50 N. Cameron Street, Harrisburg.

The group’s three members, vivirtuoss on fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki, and a number of other instruments, make enough music and enthusiasm for six players. Their success has brought them to play more than 600 concerts worldwide, including tours in Russia, Europe, Malaysia, and America. Each of the three members was a leader in the massive, multi-platinum, Quebec folk band La Bottine Souriante and have toured the world on some of the biggest stages. They’re now taking the energy they brought to arena performances and channeling it into a powerful trio.

Concert tickets are $25 General Admission, $21 for SFMS members and $10 for students ages 3-22. Advance tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets online or toll-free (800) 838-3006.
