Concertina workshop in Le Bono, Brittany, France


Recommended Posts

Every year Irish music workshops are organized in the south of Brittany (Le Bono). Le Bono is a lovely small town near the Sea, and workshops are great and there are sessions afterwards.

The concertina (Anglo of course) workshop this year will be given by Cillian KING from Limerick. Very young but very promising. The following is said about him (in French I am afraid):

''Cillian est sans doute un des plus jeune musicien jamais invité au festival. Ses influences de jeu tendent vers Peg Ryan, Noel Hill et plus récemment Pádraig Rynne. Il est compositeur et joue actuellement avec le groupe Éalú, d'autre part, il étudie la musique à l'université de Limerick. Lors d'une discussion avec Colm Delaney il y a deux ans, ce dernier me dit : "...tu vois Eddy, ce jeune garçon, c'est le futur". Je pense qu'il a raison. Il a déjà été invité dans de nombreux festivals, Lorient y compris, maintenant au Bono.''


Anyway there are concertina players who regard him as the future....
