French Music Devon videos

This Devon based group are comprised of top class musicians who share a passion for French chansons and music.  Together they present powerful renditions of some of France's most treasured songs by Piaf, Brel, Trenet and others.  Their sound is based on the French "musette" band, led by accordion, supported by guitar and mandolin, and related to Gypsy Jazz.

The group can present a varied programme in concert or cabaret, suitable for arts centres, festivals, cafes & clubs.  Their superb vocalist sings with passion, but also with great beauty and has left audiences not only with tears in their eyes, but gladness in their hearts that Piaf's legacy can be so brought to life.

The band have toured the show extensively throughout the UK, to great acclaim.
