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!
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.
At the ensemble’s heart are the undisputed talents of multi-instrumentalist, erstwhile Godfather of grunge folk, Wild Willy Barrett.
Featuring an original melange of French, Irish and English acoustic arrangements, using everything from a guitar and cello, to Irish pipes and banjo, there really is nothing else quite like them.
