De Temps Antan ("Yesteryear") includes several members of the legendary Quebec group La Bottine Souriante. The two bands share a devotion to Québécois traditional music, a modern attitude, a tendency toward response songs that get the audience involved, and a high energy level (call it joie de vivre), all boiled down with De Temps Antan to a trio format. "Sometimes they offer songs of the past, sometimes an attitude of innovation," says Radio Canada—"and sometimes crazy, irrepressible laughter." And sometimes podorhytmie, foot percussion like you've neer heard it before. De Temps Antan consists of Eric Beaudry (La Bottine Souriante) on guitar, mandolin, and bouzouki; David Boulanger on fiddle, and Pierre-Luc Dupuis on accordion and more. We haven't hosted a concert of Quebec traditional music for a while, and if you've never experienced it, you don't know what you're missing!
