Vishtèn

Four seventh-generation Acadians, descendants of Canada's original French-speaking population, create a sound that incorporates elements of the new styles of music while retaining and staying true to the essential Acadian spirit of their roots. The sound is essentially Celtic but with a difference. The songs are in French, sung by each band member, alone or in four-part harmony. The musicians are accomplished multi-instrumentalists and step dancers incorporating the fiddle, guitar, accordion, penny whistle, banjo, mandolin, piano, jaw harp and bodhran into each performance. The Pittsburg Irish Festival writes "It's like buckwheat Zydeco meets the Irish. The first time I saw them, I loved them!"
