The Peterborough Folk Music Society has scheduled a variety of upcoming concerts, starting with Le Vent Du Nord at the Park Theatre in Jaffrey on March 31. 

The award-winning band Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Québec’sFrancophone folk movement. The group’s repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while their music, rooted in the Celtic diaspora, is enhanced with a broad range of global influences.

The show starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 31. Tickets are $40. 

On Saturday, April 8, The Steel Wheels take the stage at the Peterborough Players. 

The Steel Wheels were informed by the familiar sounds of the Virginia mountains where the band was formed, but have always moved forward with and an evolving sound. In 2005, Jay Lapp (vocals, guitars, mandolin) and Eric Brubaker (vocals, fiddle) joined lead singer Trent Wagler (guitar, banjo) in forming the band as a vehicle for Wagler’s songwriting. They released several albums under Wagler’s moniker, before officially adopting the The Steel Wheels name with the 2010 release of “Red Wing.”

The Steel Wheels followed up this release with three more self-produced albums in the next five years, before joining forces with producer Sam Kassirer for “Wild As We Came Here” (2017) and “Over The Trees” (2019). Kevin Garcia (drums, percussion, keys) joined in 2017, and newest member Jeremy Darrow rounds out the rhythm section and grounds the band as they continue to explore folk-rock sounds. 

The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35.

On Friday, April 14, Dave Gunning will perform at Bass Hall in Peterborough. 

With a career spanning more than two decades, Gunning is a singer-songwriter who has earned multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Juno nomination and nine East Coast Music Awards. Much of his material is about the underdogs, heroes, family, the heart and reflects the messaging of social justice and carrying about the world around us. The fruits of those labors are now on display on his latest collection of songs, “Up Against The Sky.”

The show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25.
