Awarded the 2020 Gala GAMIQ Album of the Year award in Traditional Music, plus the OPUS prize for “Discovery of the Year 2017-2018”, among many other accolades since their first album release in 2017, this trio is winning over the hearts of listeners worldwide, young and old alike. É.T.É are Élisabeth (fiddle, step-dancing, vocals), Thierry (bouzouki, guitar, podorythmie, vocals), and Élisabeth (cello, vocals). The word été in French means summer–a fitting tribute to how their original, lively take on Québec traditional music is infused with a new vitality.
With lovely vocal harmonies, deep groove, stepdancing, and rich instrumentation, É.T.É are an explosive trio on stage, transforming the nostalgia of a kitchen party into an unforgettable show experience that celebrates the joie de vivre of Québecois culture.
We honor the traditional lands in northwestern Vermont of the Abenaki (Wabanaki) Nation of Missisquoi, who have inhabited the Missisquoi River and the Betobagw (Lake Champlain) Valley for thousands of years. We are grateful for their stewardship of the land and animals occupying this beautiful place, in which we are fortunate to live and work. We uplift, honor, and speak the traditional names of the land and people to remind this community and other visitors that these peoples did, and do still, exist.
