With members hailing from Prince Edward Island’s Evangeline region and the most remote reaches of Québec — the windswept îles de la Madeleine — twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to create a sophisticated sonic signature that combines tight vocal harmonies, layered foot percussion, and virtuoso acoustic instrumentation.

Dubbed “The Cajun Springsteen,” Wayne Toups is a Louisiana native and a Grammy Award winner. He first picked up the accordion at the age of 13, and has since not looked back. In 2009, he earned an Album-of-the-Year award from Offbeat magazine. In 2010, he was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. In 2011, he entered both the Gulf Coast Hall of Fame and the Cajun French Music Hall of Fame. Toups mixes Cajun sounds with the rhythms of zydeco, adding elements of soul music and Southern rock. He calls the revved-up result “ZyDecajun,” and his electrifying group, “a Cajun fusion band with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude.” He has recorded more than a dozen albums and toured to more than 20 countries. During this time, he has worked alongside some of Nashville's biggest stars, including Alan Jackson, Sammy Kershaw and Garth Brooks.

With a career spanning over 16 years and more than 300,000 albums sold, Wilfred LeBouthiller has nothing to prove about his enduring presence in the cultural landscape of Canadian Francophonie. Many of his songs made the top of the hit lists across the country, not to mention his numerous nominations and awards, including an Independant Music Award and Juno Award for best Francophone Album in Canada in 2003. 2018 marks a new chapter in Wilfred’s career, since he is now the owner of his own label and production company, 2W Productions. His last album is self-directed and self-produced. We can safely say that he took advantage of the experience he gained over the years to successfully stand on his own.
