Tonight at the Tolbooth - @vishtenmusique For the past decade, Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn have acted as Francophone musical ambassadors throughout the world. This Canadian trio continue to dazzle audiences with their fiery blend of #traditional French songs and original instrumentals, fusing #Celtic and #Acadian genres with a modern sensibility and rock influence.
Hailing from Prince Edward Island’s Evangeline area and from the most remote reaches of Quebec, the windswept Magdalen Islands, twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to form a sophisticated sonic signature. Their tight sibling harmonies, layered foot percussion, virtuoso #acoustic and electric instrumentation create an expansive sound that would be difficult to reproduce, in sheer complexity, by a quintet – let alone a trio. Vishtèn’s trademark blend of #fiddle, #guitar, #accordion, #harmonium, #whistles, #piano, #bodhrán, jaw harp, #moog, electric guitar and percussive #dance make for a unique tour de force of the traditional and contemporary.
