French Canadian roots musicians De Temps Antan refuse to signify one genre. The trio's name, meaning both "of olden times" and "from time to time," comments on their ongoing pursuit of both classic and contemporary influences acquired through oral tradition, library research, and close encounters on road adventures. Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis grew up in Quebec where dinner party jam sessions with family and friends inspired their continued devotion to call-and-response songs. Touring the United States, they fell for American bluegrass, old-time and Cajun music, genres that weave throughout De Temps Antan's recorded catalog and onstage performance. In addition to fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and gorgeous vocals, De Temps Antan's members incorporate footboards to stomp out rhythms, creating an infectious energy that makes for memorable live shows.
