Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection

You won’t find another band like Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection - from a Parisian café via a Dublin hooley to a New Orleans party with rip-roaring fiddle & banjo.

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-instrumentalist and erstwhile Godfather of grunge folk, Wild Willy Barrett is the driver, as the versatile and heartrending vocals of French singer Aurora Colson take centre stage.

Well known for his partnership with John Otway, Willy’s had a long and varied career, recording with Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Gordon Giltrap and Ralph McTell, as well as being considered as Brian Jones’s replacement in the Rolling Stones!

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!
