Tradition Now: Soïg Sibéril With Alain Genty

Sunday, 30 October 2022, 6.00pm

Breton guitarist Soïg Sibéril's music has something immutable about it. It only takes seconds to recognise this unique way of articulating the crystal of sounds. His particular style of playing is rich and dense, coloured by rhythmics, picking and chords. His hands play strings, rhythms, notes, or melodies...a crystalline, lively, flowery...even granite sound.

For this concert, Soïg takes us on a journey in the land of moors and forests, in the sunken paths of the Celtic countries, from Kreizh Breizh, through the country of Vannes or Redon, or even from the korong, the Monts d'Arrée or the Fañch country. To get off the beaten track, he invites Alain Genty, a bass player, well known on the Breton music scene, who brings new colours to better highlight the quality of the compositions and arrangements.

Tradition Now explores innovation in traditional music today. This Autumn’s edition celebrates the voice from sean-nós to folk from the North East of England as well as instrumental innovations from Ireland to Brittany
