Musical Mondays: Vishtèn

Victoria Playhouse

Vishtèn

Vishtèn

Monday, July 10, 2017, 07:30pm

The Victoria Playhouse will welcome Vishtèn to the stage on Monday July 10 beginning at 7:30 pm. For over a decade, the Acadian trio Vishtèn has entertained audiences with its blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibility and indie-folk influences. 

The trio comprises multi-instrumentalists Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc from the Evangeline Region of Prince Edward Island, and Magdalen Islands’ native, Pascal Miousse. All three members of Vishtèn were raised in homes in which traditional music, percussive dance and kitchen parties were part of everyday life. Together, they pay homage to their traditions and to the historic and strong musical connections between their two island Acadian communities.

From their traditional roots, these three musicians have crafted a unique brand of neo-traditional music that combines extensive archival research, original compositions, traditional French Acadian songs and virtuosic instrumentals. The rhythms of tapping feet and lilting mouth music blend with the fiddle, guitar, accordion, octave mandolin, whistles, piano, bodhrán and jaw harp.

Vishtèn tours extensively throughout North America, Europe and Australia. As they travel, members of Vishtèn share their pride in their Acadian heritage and deep knowledge of their respective traditions.
