Event

EBREL / LE BUHÉ / VASSALLO, with Trous Braz
Hot on the heels of music from Galicia and the sold-out Carlos Nunez concert in October comes a rare visit from another of the great Celtic countries, Brittany in the north west of France.  

While Breton music has not enjoyed the mainstream success that say, Irish or Scottish traditional music has, it is coming more and more into its own.  If you like any form of Celtic music, you will love this concert.  

Brezhoneg or Breton  the common and dominant language of western Brittany up until just two generations ago  is a Celtic language close to Welsh and is still largely spoken today. It is carried by a rich singing tradition that lies at the heart of musical life, reuniting crowds each week at "festoù-noz" (or night parties), concerts and singing and dance competitions.

Annie Ebrel, Nolùen Le Buhé and Marthe Vassallo are among the greatest voices of Breton music today, bringing together traditional interpretations and bold, original creations.

Their show as a trio takes Breton folk singing to another dimension. Enraptured by the heritage of these traditional musical genres, they multiply their innovations with complex, three-voice constructions, version and resonance variations, speaking-singing, and other twists. Three deeply moving voices, three strong personalities, and the pure beauty of the moment in which it all comes harmoniously together.  

Adding to this evening, we are delighted to have Trouz Bras (pronounced "Trooz Brazz"). The name means "Great Sound" in Breton. Made up of Ray Price and Barry Hall and is based right here in Rhode Island.
