DISTINGUISHED PERFORMANCE SERIES. The Distinguished Performance Series of West Virginia University at Parkersburg will present the French Canadian folk ensemble De Temps Antan, on Friday, February 26, at 7 p.m. in the College Activities Center.

The Quebecois folk music trio De Temps Antan, using fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, and bouzouki, blends boundless energy with the unmistakable joie de vivre found in traditional French-Canadian music. Their sound, anchored by the “tac-tic-a-tac” of les pieds (a form of seated clogging found only in French Canada), explores time-honored melodies from Quebec’s musical past informed as much by their world travels as by their fieldwork and family ties. De Temps Antan has performed at numerous international folk festivals in North America and Europe, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), Tonder Festival (Denmark), Sani Festival (Greece), and Festival International of Louisiana (U.S).

Tickets are currently on sale in the college business office (8 a.m. – 4 p.m.) or by calling (304) 424-8223. Adults $15, Students $10.
