É.T.É.: Montreal, Quebec
Three young musicians with varied musical backgrounds united their creative and artistic forces to form the group É.T.É. Its members, Élisabeth Moquin, Thierry Clouette and Élisabeth Giroux, offer a very dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music. Their musical arrangements are shaded with infuences of folk, progressive rock and classical music interpreted on fiddle, Irish bouzouki and cello, with the special colour to the group’s appeal through masterful step dancing.
