Vishtèn (rescheduled from March 11) @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Vishtèn is a contemporary Acadian traditional group. Group members Pastelle and Emmanuelle LeBlanc and Pascal Miousse have become a distinctive and powerful international voice for traditional music from this part of the world (Prince Edward Island and Magdalen Islands). From their traditional roots, these three creative island musicians have been crafting their own brand of new traditional music and a trademark sound that combines original compositions and traditional French-Acadian songs with driving rhythms. All highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists and singers, their unique blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, harmonium, whistles, piano, bodhrán, jaw harp, Moog, electric guitar and percussive dance make for a unique tour de force, weaving together traditional and contemporary sounds. They were featured performers at the 2016 New World Festival at Chandler!

For over a decade, Vishtèn has earned its place as one of the most respected bands on the international touring scene. The members of this driving trio are both powerful francophone singers and fiery multi-instrumentalists, fusing Acadian and Celtic genres with rock and indie-folk influence.
