Hello, everyone!

For those who couldn't make it to the Chantez-vous bien chez nous Festival in Quebec, another opportunity to appreciate De Temps Antan performance will be their show in Ann Arbor. My dear friend Anjili is one of the organizers and sent the following info on this event:

"French-Canadian roots and traditional musicians, De Temps Antan, play the Ark in Ann Arbor on Monday, March 5 at 8 p.m. The three members of the group, André Brunet (fiddle, guitar, tapping), Éric Beaudry (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, tapping), and Pierre-Luc Dupuis (accordion, harmonica, jaw harp) are all current or former members of the internationally acclaimed folkloric group La Bottine Souriante. André Brunet will also be known to Midwestern audiences as a member of Kevin Burke’s Celtic Fiddle Festival, whose performance at the Ark last November received a warm and enthusiastic response from their audience.

De Temps Antan’s music is a rich blend of traditional French-Canadian and Acadian songs and original compositions by the artists. Their sets intersperse instrumental folkloric pieces with French-Canadian response songs — all driven by the energetic beat of French-Canadian 'podorythmie,' the foot-tapping that replaces drums in traditional music from Québec. The members of the band offer a fresh and vibrant perspective on the music of their ancestors—and on the joie de vivre that has come to define the music of their province.

THE ARC (March 5, 8 pm): De Temps Antan
316 S. Main St.
Ann Arbor, Michigan

Ticket price: $20
Tickets available at: The Ark Box Office, Herb David Guitar Studio, Michigan Union Ticket Office, or by phone at (734) 763-8587
