Le Vent du Nord

Since 2004, you’ve heard the voice of Av Harris on WFCR, reporting mostly on Connecticut politics. Av is leaving public radio after 10 years, to join the Executive Staff of Connecticut’s State Treasurer Denise Nappier. We wish him the best of luck! And he leaves WFCR on a musical note…

2008 marks 400 years since the first French settlers arrived in North America. There are year-long celebrations planned north of the border in Quebec. Av Harris recently travelled to Montreal and spoke with members of the band “Le Vent du Nord”, a group that is helping to fuel the resurgence of traditional music in French Canada.
