WILD WILLY BARRETT'S FRENCH CONNECTION:
A Mange-Tout Far!

With their unique musical style and irrepressible sense of fun, Willy, John, Mary and Aurora are back in support of their new vinyl album, 'A Mange-Tout Far'.

From a cafe in Paris, via a hoolie in Dublin, to a night out in New Orleans with rip-roaring fiddle and banjo this band does it all!

Charismatic and captivating French singer Aurora Colson takes centre stage, supported by innovative arrangements beautifully performed on instruments including the guitar, cello, fiddle, banjo and uilleann pipes, all overlaid with a large dose of wry humour.

Changing gear with almost every number, this fabulous show is driven by multi-instrumentalist Wild Willy Barrett.

Willy, best known for his partnership with John Otway, has had a long and varied career. He has toured with The Police, Madness and many more, and his wonderful acoustic guitar playing is featured on 'The Contemporary Folk Guitar' album alongside Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Gordon Giltrap & Ralph McTell.

A master of live entertainment, Willy's dry off-the-wall humour has audiences laughing out loud between numbers.

A great night out unlike anything else on offer in the UK at the moment!
