They are only three, yet they sound like six! With Ce monde ici-bas, De Temps Antan propels folk to a whole new level. Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis – Quebec’s most powerful trad trio - switch between a variety of instrumental combinations from violin, guitar, bouzouki, accordion, and harmonica to vigorous foot-stomping percussion. A festive atmosphere, high in color and heart-warming, a glorious anthem to the glory of ancient time in a modern presentation!

“They have enough power to drive a nuclear furnace. If you could remain seated during their performance you were either dead-drunk or dead.” - Folkwords

It takes a special blend of musical flair to create memorable songs of yesteryear! Songs with a hint of contemporary—dosed with uncontrolled laughter, deep-rooted couplets and sudden, impromptu shifts—that speak to familiar rhythms of the past. Welcome to the original musical stylings of De Temps Antan!

Since 2003, Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis have been exploring and performing time-honoured melodies from the stomping grounds of Quebec’s musical past. Using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, our three virtuosos blend boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found only in traditional Quebec music. In fact, the only thing missing from this magnificent musical blend is you! So come enjoy an evening unlike any other with De Temps Antan.
