De Temps Antan

Traditional Quebec music is coming to Guelph in the shape of De Temps Antan. Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis have been exploring and performing time-honoured melodies from the stomping grounds of Quebec’s musical past since 2003. Using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, the three virtuosos blend boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found only in traditional Quebec music.

The show takes place at Royal Canadian Legion, 57 Watson Parkway South, Guelph on March 17 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $25 and can be ordered online here.
