|De Temps Antan perform traditional melodies with a contemporary twist on Saturday in Ramsey Auditorium.|
It takes a special blend of musical flair to create memorable songs of yesteryear, pieces with a hint of contemporary that still speak to familiar rhythms of the past. Welcome to the original musical stylings of De Temps Antan.
Since 2003, Eric Beaudry, Andre Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis have been exploring and performing time-honored melodies from Quebec’s musical past. Using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, the three virtuosos blend boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found only in traditional Quebec music.
The group’s percussive footwork keeps a lively beat throughout the songs and instrumentals, and the folk harmonies and textures will keep the audience engaged all the way to curtain call.
