CU Folk and Roots Presents Vishten with Wagon Fire
Hailing from Prince Edward Island's Evangeline area and from the most remote reaches of Quebec - the windswept Magdalen Islands - twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to form a sophisticated sonic signature combing tight sibling harmonies, layered foot percussion, virtuoso acoustic and electric instrumentation create an expansive sound that would be difficult to reproduce, in sheer complexity, by a quintet. Their trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, harmonium, whistles, piano, bodhrán, jaw harp, moog, electric guitar and percussive dance make for a unique tour de force of traditional and contemporary sounds.

After touring extensively on three continents, the name Vishtèn is now synonymous with Acadian music worldwide. In addition to releasing four albums and performing at thousands of international festivals - from the Vancouver Olympics to to France's Interceltique de Lorient - their music has been showcased on American television (ESPN) and the Japanese film, Finding Anne.
