  • Amid the welcome eclecticism of many festivals in the region, here’s one that sets itself apart by finding a world of variety in a single instrument: the accordion.

    "Funnily enough, despite its incredibly strong association with French popular music in popular consciousness, the accordion has been a new arrival to the region (19th century) compared with many traditional Breton instruments. Still, its rapid rise to popularity in the country as a whole is in no doubt and, for 15 years, Le Grande Soufflet has been celebrating not just its historic uses but also its durability and versatility in a modern musical context.
    Of course, Spanish, Argentine and Brazilian musicians are frequently present, but so is anyone who wields an accordion creatively, including arty rock, jazz, electronic or cabaret artists."
