Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection
With their unique musical style and irrepressible sense of fun, changing gear with almost every number, it is easy to see how audiences are captivated by this very talented quartet.
From a riverside cafe, via a hoolie in Dublin, to a night out in New Orleans with rip-roaring fiddle and banjo – this band does it all!
A master of live entertainment, multi-instrumentalist Wild Willy Barrett’s dry off-the-wall humour has audiences laughing out loud between numbers, as the warm and charismatic vocals of Jane Williams take centre stage. Innovative arrangements beautifully performed on instruments including the guitar, cello, fiddle, banjo and uilleann pipes, add a touch of magic.
Willy, best known for his partnership with John Otway, has had a long and varied career. He has toured with artists as diverse as Madness and Steeleye Span, and his wonderful acoustic guitar playing is featured on ‘The Contemporary Folk Guitar’ album alongside Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Gordon Giltrap & Ralph McTell.
The group’s singer, Jane Williams,has just recently finished performing on Van Morrison’s latest album, and is a wonderful new addition to the ensemble. Her effortless but highly emotive vocals draw you in and leave you wanting more.
A great night out unlike anything else on offer in the UK at the moment!
