comte de foix


I am a French primary school teacher, I play the piano and the balalaika (prima). I have been recently interested in Irish traditional music. I wanted to start playing the mandolin but I tried to play some tunes with the balalaika and in my humble opinion, it sounds quite well! I will post some videos when I have improved.

For now, I play Monaghan Jig, The Maid I Never Forgot, The Irish Washerwoman, Eleanor’s Neary and Dusty Windowsills. I will soon begin working on Tam Lin, Kesh Jig and the King of the Fairies. Of course Russian tunes too, like Kalinka, Korobeniki, Moscow Nights, I Met You, Smouglianka, Katyusha etc
