Pascal Miousse & Emmanuelle LeBlanc
(from Internationally-renowned group Vishtèn)
A powerhouse of melodic improvisation and raw energy, Pascal engages listeners with his
unforgettable musical presence. His unique fiddle bowing style and repertoire is rooted in his
native Magdalen Islands’ tradition, but Pascal’s approach and execution reflect a contemporary
sensitivity and mastery.
A skilled and innovative percussionist, Emmanuelle is widely recognized as a master of
podorythmie (foot percussion) and has a wide range of acoustic instruments in her arsenal, and
moves flawlessly between them, each played with stunning proficiency and innovation. She has
pioneered her melodic instrument of choice–the tin whistle–with a signature blend of traditional
Acadian, Irish, Cajun, classical and rock sensibilities.
