Description And Comments

TradNation is an acoustic musical ensemble that plays Québécois folk songs with traditional orchestrations. That means a whole lot of fingerpicking, fiddlin’, flute playing, and French lyrics, with percussion provided by a spirited step-dancer’s clacking feet.

Even if you aced your high school French class, you may struggle to understand the singers’ Acadian-accented patois, but the humble joy they take in sharing their musical heritage is infectious in any language.

Much like the similar Quickstep folk band in the U.K., the TradNation entertainers feel authentic to the point of lacking the polish and stage presence we usually associate with a Disney theme park show; we’re not looking for matching spangled outfits, but this group looks like they just rolled out of Tim Horton’s.

Touring Tips

If you enjoy their show, stick around afterwards to speak with the TradNation performers; they’re more than happy to talk about their homeland and its culture.

Special Comments

For the time being, all the benches in front of the Mill Stage have been removed. Until they are returned, you’ll need to arrive early enough to get a seat on the stone wall to the right side of the stage, or stand in the sun through the show.
