For over a decade, the Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn has dazzled audiences with its fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibilities and indie-folk influences. This band from Canada’s east coast has been recognized as an ambassador of Francophone culture around the world.


Hailing from Prince Edward Island's Evangeline Region and the most remote reaches of Quebec—the windswept Magdalen Islands—twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to create a sophisticated sonic signature that combines tight vocal harmonies, layered foot percussion, and virtuosic acoustic instrumentation. Their trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, octave mandolin, whistles, piano, bodhrán, jaw harp and percussive dance result in a tour de force of traditional and contemporary music.


Performing and teaching extensively on three continents, they have released five award-winning albums, including the 2016 East Coast Music Award for "Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year”.

BEN SURES

  A Livingroom Concert
Thursday Nov 23, 2017, 7:30 pm

2754 Cameron Rd, West Kelowna

Ben Sures is a Canadian roots musician and contributor to CBC's The Irrelevant Show and is the son of Order of Canada-winning ceramic artist Jack Sures and painter and illustrator Deborah Uman-Sures.

A mostly-self-taught musician, Sures discovered the music of Robert Johnson at age 15 and devoted himself to the study of blues and roots.

Ben spent close to a decade as an itinerant street musician and more than 20 years touring the Canadian coffee house and festival circuit both as a solo headliner and as a sideman for blues musicians such as Harp Dog Brown, Rita Chiarelli and Paul Reddick. During that time, he developed a distinctive, quirky songwriting style marked by plain-spoken lyrics that often express unique takes on unusual topics.

He won the folk category of the 2005 John Lennon Song Competition with "Any Precious Girl, a compassionate yet unpatronizing song about a young woman with bipolar disorder.
