I thought I had already posted this - but I guess not!
This is probably one of the main albums that got me interested in traditional music. I got it on holiday in Brittany with my parents when I was about 12 at the festival in La Baule.
Looking at Ceol’s posting of Fest-Noz has prompted me to post it.
Released by Escalibur in 1989
A classic Breton album with a number of "Greats" of the Breton tradition:
Fiddle: Pierick Lemou, Herve Bertho, Christian Lemaitre, Jacky Molard, Fanch Landreau, Yvon Rouget
Cello: Thierry Moreau
Double Bass: Pierre Lecompte.
If anyone has a better track listing than this then let me know and I will edit the details.
Thanks to Henk for the track listing for the last track - it doesn’t seem to have seperated the tunes though so am not sure what to do about it. - Jeremy?
P.S. Track 1 should read ‘Gavottes "Montagne"’ but appears to have been amended for uniformity and I am not about to change it back!
The tape sleave notes some composers (although they do not attach them to particular tune names within the tracks. Here they are anyway:
2. F. Landreau
4. Trad. - J. Baron
5. T. Moreau
6. D. Laurent
8. A. Statman
10. Not listed - but the track is only 6 seconds long - a "herald" I suppose (would make a great ringtone!)
