Share the love of music this Valentine’s Day in Qualicum Beach, as a traditional Quebecois band returns to the area.

De Temps Antan takes historic Quebec music and injects its own enthusiastic groove.

Éric Beaudry, André Brunet and Pierre-Luc Dupuis came together to form the group in 2003. They play fiddle, accordion, harmonica, guitar, bouzouki and a number of other instruments, including their feet.

Dupuis told The News last time the group came to town that the upbeat music “reflects (their) Joie d vivre from Quebec.”

Freshly back from touring Scotland and Ireland, De Temps Antan is performing at St. Stephens United Church Feb. 14.

The group was very well received last time they played in Qualicum Beach a couple of years ago in the same location.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 available from the Vintage Candy Shop in Qualicum Beach. Seating is limited.

In the afternoon before the show, Andre Brunet will be giving a fiddle (other melody instruments) workshop at Joyce Beaton’s home in Qualicum Beach. Tickets are still available for that event. Contact Beaton for more information at beatonqualicum@gmail.com.

Following the trio’s Qualicum Beach performance, De Temps Antan will play at the Maple Sugar Festival in Nanaimo Feb. 15 and 16, before heading back to Quebec for some more performances.

St. Stephen’s Church is located at 150 Village Way.
