Since 2003, Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis have been exploring and performing time-honored melodies from the stomping grounds of Quebec’s musical past. Using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, these three virtuosos blend boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found only in traditional Quebec music.
Chandler has nurtured a love and appreciation for traditional Quebecois music through its New World Festival, celebrating its 20th anniversary on September 2, 2012. We are delighted to welcome these gifted young musicians who bring new appreciation to traditional music through impeccable musicianship and memorable performances.
"De Temps Antan was a huge hit at the 2009 Wheatland Music Festival! The fact that they were completely unknown to most festival-goers made it all the more special.
When they took to the main stage late on Saturday night, no one expected this unassuming trio to get the entire crowd on their feet by the end of the first tune. Their confidence and stage presence was captivating and easily won the hearts of crowd. With powerful vocals, driving rhythms and good humor, this group will do great things to advance the awareness of Quebecois music far beyond their own borders."
