Here’s the announcement from Levitt Pavilion:

The Two-time Felix Award-winning trio from Quebec are touring with their latest award-winning album.

Traditional music flirts with classical, Manouche, electronica, and folk! The Quebec-based Les Grands Hurleurs is on the road with its ¾ Fort show inspired by the repertoire of its newest award-winning CD of original, open-minded music, very much alive yet respectful of its roots.
