Les Tordus will perform and teach traditional music from Québec, Appalachia and Scandinavia. Learn the history, rhythms, music and instrumentation of this old-time dance music—and the toe-tapping reasons for its resurgence in popularity today.

Artist Bio

Les Tordus are four Shoreline musicians who play traditional, upbeat Québécois and American old-time music, along with a smattering of tunes from Scandinavia and elsewhere. “Tordus” is French for bent, crooked, or off-kilter … and so is the band’s music, which is sure to get your toes tapping! The band features Guilford High School student Rosalie Coleman on fiddle; John Zachos on guitar; Sarah Prown on whistles, mandolin and banjo; and Ken Karpowicz on accordion, tenor banjo and foot percussion.
