@ABitRusty -

Fabulous 1st tune - going on my list!!! 

First tune is THE MOST IRISH sounding tune, ever - wonderful swing in the groove! 

The other two tunes definitely sound Québécois to me. "The band performs traditional Québécois music (which is heavily influenced by Celtic music from both Ireland and Brittany), as well as original numbers in this style, [sung] in French." (wikipedia)  

 

About Tour du Monde:

This instrumental suite is made up of a traditional tune entitled “Toto”, Olivier’s “Reel scandinave,” and “Reel ABC,” co-composed by André and Olivier [Demers] while the group was playing in a certain concert hall, which has since closed down. 
We’d like to take this moment to express our admiration for the incredible Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, who has supported us for years. 

I thought we had a whole thread about Le Vent du Nord somewhere... I can't find it.

The award winning and highly acclaimed band Le Vent du Nord are a leading force in Québec’s exciting and progressive Francophone folk movement. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while their highly rhythmic and soulful music, rooted in the Celtic diaspora, is enhanced with a broad range of global influences.
