McDonnell Trio     irish and international folksongs

At the moment Simon is touring all over France with family band McDonnell Trio. From one generation to the next, the singing goes on and a unique craft of performing and story telling is handed down from father to sons. The McDonnell Trio’s voices and two generations give life to folksongs from all around the world.


Spring Barley     irish desert blues

Rennes based band Spring Barley have blended the wild harmonics of wooden flutes with calebash and energy driven mandola with dexterous accordion. Improvisation and new material are at the heart of their hypnotic trance. Spring Barley’s live performances are well seasoned and spiced up by some authentic and stylish trad songs.
