Upbeat, modern Celtic-Acadian music
From Prince Edward Island, francophone trio Vishtèn have been polishing their Celtic-Acadian music for over a decade. Re-invigorating traditional songs and creating new compositions with rock and folk influences, they draw on an impressive instrumental repertoire, playing fiddle, guitar, piano, accordion, mandolin and jaw harp with ease. The fast-paced, intricate footwork of Acadian step-dancing is sure to be a memorable highlight of the show. Vishtèn performed at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, earned multiple East Coast Music Awards and toured internationally to great acclaim.
