De Temps Antan

Songs from the past and songs of today, dosed with uncontrolled laughter, deep-rooted couplets and sudden impromptu shifts - this is the sum total of De Temps Antan! Since 2003, Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis have brilliantly explored and performed a traditional repertoire of Quebec's musical past. With an explosion of fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, they enjoy a devilishly good time staying from the ordinary and thrilling audiences with their contagious joie de vivre.

"I wanted it to be a male-female duet. A duo like the White Stripes are in rock — we wanted to be the equivalent in folk music," Daumail says. Their songs are entirely sung in English. "French artists singing in English isn't something new. It goes back to groups like Les Thugs and Syd Matters," he remarks.
