For the past decade Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn have acted as Francophone musical ambassadors throughout the world. The Canadian trio has dazzled audiences with their fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern sensibility of rock influence.
Their 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 traditional and contemporary sounds.
After touring extensively on three continents, the name Vishtèn is now synonymous with Acadian music worldwide.
In addition to releasing four albums and performing at thousands of international festivals – from the Vancouver Olympics to to France’s Interceltique de Lorient – their music has been showcased on American television (ESPN), the Québecois film Louis Cyr and the Japanese film, Finding Anne.
