Since 2003, Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis – The Québécois folk music trio De Temps Antan – have been exploring and performing time-honored melodies from the stomping grounds of Quebec’s musical past. Using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, and bouzouki, the trio blends boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found in traditional French-Canadian music. Their sound, anchored by the “tac-tic-a tac” of les pieds (a form of seated clogging found only in French Canada), is informed as much by their world travels as by their fieldwork and family ties. De Temps Antan has performed at numerous important folk festivals, such as Winnipeg Folk Festival, Tønder Festival (Denmark), Sani Festival (Greece), and Festival International of Louisiana.
“You’ll see a superb interaction and great joy in their presentation, and they feed off the energy in a room and get stronger with each song…These guys aren’t just wonderful instrumentalists, they are also excellent singers.” —The Huffington Post
This event will take place in our Studio Theatre and will have reserved seating.
This engagement of De Temps Antan is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council.
