Did you miss Vishtèn last year? You’re getting a second chance. For over a decade now this trio have bewitched audiences with their unique blend of French songs and original tunes that draw on Celtic and French-Canadian music traditions, dipped in indie tones and a modern rock sensibility. Vishtèn are: Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc, from Prince Edward Island, and Pascal Miousse from the francophone Magdalen Islands. Between them they master a wide range of instruments: violin, accordeon, mandola, guitar, bodhrán, piano and jaw harp, and the tunes are kicked along by the foot-tapping that the eastern Canadian seaboard is famous for. Vishtèn have released six albums, among them Terre Rouge from 2015, which won the prestigious East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year. The trio have toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. Their only Danish festival concert in 2019.
