New trad: Explorations in indie, jazz, pop, and bluegrass turn the bilingual songs of Rosier into sophisticated, emotional journeys. It’s not surprising that the Montreal-based band has a facility with reinterpreting age-old folk songs. The group takes its new name (it was formerly known as Les Poules à Colin) from a traditional song, and its members grew up in a flourishing Canadian folk music scene that included their parents.

Friday 10/25. $12-15, 8pm. The Front Porch, 221 E. Water St. 806-7062.
