New Hampshire Traditional Arts & Folklife Listing

Henry & Larry Riendeau
French Canadian Music: Guitar & Fiddle

Henry and Larry Riendeau are brothers and play the traditional music of their French Canadian heritage. They have been playing music with family and friends in the North Country of New Hampshire since they were very young. The Riendeauís represented New Hampshire at the 1999 Smithsonian Folklife Festival and at the Celebrate New Hampshire festival held in 2000 in Hopkinton. At both festivals, they performed with the Cote Family (also on this Listing) and other French-Canadian musicians. In 1999, the Riendeauís received the Living Folk Heritage Governors' Arts Award for their lifetime commitment to the tradition.

Preferred activities and age groups: Performances at schools, community locations such as libraries, historic societies, fairs, festivals, and museums for all ages.
