Québécois quartet Le Vent du Nord come bearing gifts of an array of guests, including Emily Smith, Julie Fowlis, Sharon Shannon, Patsy Reid, Megan Henderson and Christine Hanson.

Le Vent’s repertoire features vibrantly reinvigorated traditional songs and tunes alongside original material. With a scoresheet ranging from forceful four-part a capella harmonies to “irresistibly frolicsome” instrumentals, audiences will be blown away – in a good way – this Saturday (17th) at the Old Fruitmarket. £16.50+.
