É.T.É.

Quebec

Élisabeth Moquin (fiddle), Thierry Clouette (Irish bouzouki), and Élisabeth Giroux (cello) are three young musicians from Quebec whose varied musical backgrounds and creative forces have united to form the group É.T.É. Offering a dynamic and modern vision of traditional Québec and Acadian music, their musical arrangements are shaded with influences of folk, progressive rock, and classical music. Élisabeth Moquin adds to the group’s appeal with her masterful stepdancing. The musical vision of these three performers is presented in their original compositions and unusual arrangements of traditional tunes. With rich vocal harmonies, musical drive, instrumental virtuosity, and remarkable on-stage complicity, É.T.É. transforms the traditional kitchen party into an unforgettably entertaining and lively performance. É.T.É’s first album, Le boire des minuits, was released in 2017 and led to the group being awarded the Grand Prix Desjardins de la Culture de Lanaudière in the category Émergence, as well as being named 2017-2018 Discovery of the Year at the Prix Opus Gala. É.T.É. released its second album, Les Quatre roses, in 2019.
