WILD WILLY BARRETT'S FRENCH CONNECTION From a Parisian café via a Dublin hooley to a New Orleans party with rip-roaring fiddle & banjo, this band does it all! Imagine stumbling across a smoky back street bar, late night jam: Django Reinhardt and The Pogues; Robert Johnson accompanies Edith Piaf; Bob Marley's jammin' with Stéphane Grappelli; Tom Waits joins in. This is French Connection. Multi-talented erstwhile Godfather of grunge folk Wild Willy Barrett directs, as charismatic and captivating French singer Aurora Colson takes centre stage. Changing gear between almost every number, 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. www.wildwillybarrett.com
