French trad music videos

Hi all

There have been various discussions about French (and more often, Breton) music over the years. I thought I’d share this collection of videos I’ve written up, along with some notes about esthetics of french traditional music and dance.

I found this extremely interesting. I had little idea of the depth and breadth of traditional music and dance in France. Fascinating essay, and enjoyable videos as well—nicely done, Tirno. Merci beaucoup.

Viva la difference! :-) Nice collection, thanks.

That page just crashed my computer, you may want to split up the content on a few different pages with links so its not so demanding on the memory.

Just a suggestion! :)

Kess: I’m sorry about that. Do you have Javascript on? When I saw how bad the page was, I added a script that sets all the YouTube embeds to images.

Pete, that’d be like saying why was there no bluegrass in a page about English music!
