NZ Tour October 5-15
French Canadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn are making their first visit to New Zealand, bringing their upbeat infusion of traditional songs, built on a bedrock of driving foot percussion, fiddle, piano, step dance, and accordion.
Vishtèn magnificently “blends Celtic and French influences with Canada’s equivalent of Cajun music” – Living Tradition.
Winner of 4 East Coast Music Awards, including “Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year” (2016).
