You won't find another band like Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection. From a Parisian café via a Dublin hooley to a New Orleans party with rip-roaring fiddle & banjo.
Imagine stumbling across a smoky back street bar, late night jam: Django Reinhardt & The Pogues; Robert Johnson accompanies Edith Piaf; Bob Marley's jammin' with Stéphane Grappelli; Tom Waits joins in. This is French Connection.
At the ensemble's heart are the undisputed talents of multi-instrumentalist, erstwhile Godfather of grunge folk, Wild Willy Barrett.
As the versatile and heartrending vocals of French singer Aurora Colson take centre stage, the quartet perform stunning original compositions and arrangements on guitar, cello, harmonium, whistle, fiddle, banjo and Irish pipes.
Enjoy a wonderful evening of unique musical entertainment overlaid with a large dose of dry humour, very different from anything else you will experience in the UK at the moment.
