Éric Beaudry, David Boulanger & Pierre-Luc Dupuis have been brilliantly and skillfully exploring and renewing the Quebec traditional repertoire since 2003. At first they had formed De Temps Antan only to perform a handful of shows annually, but now here they are touring the world all year long!

“…there is no better group to apply this magical tonic than the Quebecois  power trio known as De Temps Antan” University of Dayton Arts Series, USA

De Temps Antan provide a surprising – and surprisingly exploratory – experience, an explosion of fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, and bouzouki. Their sets include ancient songs, new tunes, uncontrollable fits of laughter, dusted-down verses, and the occasional unplanned side trip. De Temps Antan is hands down the most powerful trad trio in Quebec. Their third album Ce monde ici-bas won the ADISQ’s 2014 FELIX Award for Best Traditional Music Album and they’ve been selected for an official showcase during Folk Alliance International Conference held in Montreal last February 2019

They’ve released their fourth opus fall 2017 and now touring north america and europe.
