The Celtic Fiddle Festival rejoices in 20 years of compelling and powerful music with their sixth recording, Live in Brittany. The group, described by the Boston Herald as “three sensational fiddlers from three distinct Celtic traditions”, features Kevin Burke, a giant of Irish music; renowned fiddler Christian Lemaître (Kornog) from Brittany, France; and sensational young Quebecois musician André Brunet (De Temps Antan, La Bottine Souriante).
Live in Brittany was recorded in the beautiful, centuries-old Breton town of Guémené-sur-Scorff, home to Nicolas Quémener, the group’s talented guitar accompanist. Featuring all newly-recorded selections, the album represents the rich cultural traditions of Ireland, Quebec, and Brittany. Live in Brittany encapsulates both the energy and excitement of a live performance as well as the beauty and vitality of this ageless music.
The Celtic Fiddle Festival received a rousing and affectionate welcome from the enthusiastic audience. As you listen to the joyous performances enjoy the intimate warmth of a winter’s evening concert in rural Brittany. The group’s combination of music, musicianship, and love for their respective traditions is exciting audiences worldwide in this anniversary year, both in concert and with the release of Live in Brittany.
