Calum Stewart & Heikki Bourgault (Scotland - Bretagne 2011) @320

A leading instrumentalist in Contemporary Traditional, British Isles, European
and World music, Calum Stewart is establishing a unique style along his way,
the sound of his Wooden Flute being fundamental to this.
Coming from a new generation of Breton musicians, Heikki Bourgault's
traditional yet modern, unique interpretations, push the limits of the open
tuned guitar.
Originally from the North of Scotland and brought up with the traditional
music of his native Morayshire, Calum Stewart has a developed a distinctive
contemporary-traditional voice. Through collaborations with a vast array of
musicians from many different genres, in the UK and Internationally,
Calum has absorbed many different influences on his musical journey.
Formed through an excisting musical friendship, Calum Stewart
and Heikki Bougault began their musical journey together in 2008.
Rooted in Celtic music of the British Isles, Calum was brought up among
the strong musical traditions of his native Scotland. Starting on the penny
whistle at a young age, Calum then moved onto the Wooden Flute.
Whilst being dedicated to the traditional music of his home land,
Calum is constantly searching for the voice that goes beyond
borders and melodies which are not geographically cemented.
Coming from a new generation of guitarists, Heikki embraces the strong tradition
of Breton musicians, whilst pushing the boundaries of the open-tuned guitar.
His knowledge of Fest Noz dance, both as dancer and musician, nourishes his composition in
the Breton style, whilst giving him a solid base to explore new ground.
This urge to look beyond borders, pushing the limits,
whilst respecting traditions is what brings Calum Stewart and Heikki Bourgault together :
With old instruments, a new sound is forged.

Stefano Valla & Danieli Scurati - Per dovi [2009 ITALY] @VBR

Kindly contributed by gaudefroy friend

Appennino Folk Music
Deeply linked to the territory of four provinces and in particular Cegni, country of Giacomo and Ernesto Sala (the most important piffero players of the last century), Stefano Valla and Daniele Scurati are a direct continuation of the repertoire and the musical language of these musicians. Their activity is aimed at keeping alive the music and culture of oral tradition in this mountainous area and to promote the dissemination through festivals, concerts, workshops and conferences.
The duo is pursuing a dual parallel activity playing at parties in the countries of the Apennines, where the dance is still one of the key moments of aggregation (festivities , weddings, festivals, carnivals) and through exhibitions and musical events in Italy and abroad.
At the same time, thanks to their attention to contemporary cultural stimuli, and through experiences in other areas of music (jazz, classical, song writing) interpret their music expresses its vitality and their belonging to their own time.
Area of distribution of pipe, there is still strong ties to the musical repertoire, a repertoire of traditional dances before the assertion of ballroom dancing, are part of it: giga, alessandrina, monferrina,piana, povera donna, the latter with ritual connotations and symbolic details.

Capercaillie - At The Heart Of It All (2013 Scotland) @320

The Scottish folk scene is booming, and Capercaillie can take much of the credit. For the past 30 years they have revived and reworked Gaelic traditional music, while introducing new songs and exploring new musical settings. It has been a bold, sometimes uneven project that has seen them experimenting with synthesisers and programmed drums, but this anniversary set is a reminder of their exquisite acoustic work. It's dominated by the fine, pure vocals of Karen Matheson, who is equally at ease with rapid-fire "mouth music" as she is with an emotional Gaelic lament about a 17th-century drowning, and there is classy backing from a band that includes pianist Donald Shaw, of Celtic Connections fame, and master flautist and piper Michael McGoldrick. There are contributions from Scotland's new folk elite, including Julie Fowlis and members of Lau, and there's still an experimental edge, with a dash of jazzy brass added in.

Hot Griselda - Hot Griselda [Belgium 2009] @320

Trying to escape Irish traditional music uilleann piper Stijn van Beek ended up at a folkbal in Nijmegen, looking for some shelter for the autumn cold of 2007. But apparently there was no escape. Before he even managed to enter the dancefloor the haunting sound of the Irish pipes surrounded him once again, this time played by multi-instrumentalist Toon van Mierlo. As a result of this most remarkable meeting Toon and Stijn decided to start playing together with two renowned string-prodigies: Kaspar Laval and Jeroen Geerinck. Hot Griselda was born. And She was hotter than hot, bigger than huge and at times quite sensitive... Hot Griselda hit the folkscene by surprise and hit it hard. After Her first appearance at Boombalfestival summer 2008 a stormy year followed during which She conquered the hearts and minds of the folkies throughout Belgium, Holland and even Portugal. Within a year Her first album was out, containing thirteen steamy tracks of folk with echoes from Ireland, Flanders, Brittany and even heavy metal. Recently Hot Griselda spread her wings to France and Germany, in the meantime working on brand new refreshing material!

In 2008, Florian Huygebaert (percussion instruments) joins the band...
In 2009, after two years spent on various stages of France and Belgium (mainly around the Franco-Flemish area, but also in festivals such as Damada, Genntines, the Boombal festival, Andaças and Roubaix l'accordéon), Fanny Bizien and Olivier Catteau leave the band. They are succeeded by J-B Guerrier (double bass) and Theo Kaiser (trumpet and DADGAD guitar)...

Keeping the dancers' well-being as sole purpose and driving force of its creation, the band turns towards a jazz-inspired aesthetic, preserving space for improvisation within its compositions and arragements.

Peut-être Demain - Gelieve de Dieren te Voederen [Belgium 2010] @320

Peut-être Demain is a group of 6 good friends who share the same passion: music! They met each other at the folk training camp which takes place every summer in Gooik, Belgium. It was there that, after several years, they decided to start a band of their own. They created their own dance folk-rock music and made their first appearance on-stage at the festival “Gooikoorts” in 2007. Linde Carrijn (violin), Lisa Jordens (violin and vocals), Michael Verlinden (Electric Piano), Gielis Cautaers (drums and percussion) and Wouter Devriese (electric and acoustic guitar) instantly captured the hearts of the audience... One month later they all but won the ball-contest of “Boombal”. Their second place did not stop them. From then on they moved forward at high-speed: the ball of Epiphany in Gooik, the carnival ball in Kortrijk and a performance at the “’t Ey” in St.Niklaas. Also on their record of achievements are the Paulus-celebrations, the Scottish weekend, the “speculaas-festival” and a first international performance at the Fers Folk Festival in the Netherlands. Next to these, they regularly perform at ‘boombals’ throughout Flanders. Wherever they appear, their enthusiasm is contagious. Their latest acquisition is Joren Cautaers who takes care of the bass guitar... Peut-être Demain plays folk-rock dance music which they created themselves. Their music is aimed at all ages: young and old, families with children,.... Their performances are regularly preceded by a dance initiation. Thus, many people are encouraged to take part in the dance and get involved in the music. E.g. in March 2008, a dance initiation was given by Peut-être Demain to the children of the primary school of Galmaarden, during school hours. The following weekend, the school had a folkball with Peut-être Demain which was again preceded by a dance initiation, not only for the children but for all those present, young and old... In a recording studio Peut-être Demain recorded the song “Julie” for the Boombal-cd, volume 2. They appear next to major names of the folk world: Kadril, Laïs, Urban Trad, Ishtar, Yann Tiersen, Ambrozijn,.... This cd was released in September 2008... The year 2009 took an excellent start for Peut-être Demain. Besides overcrowded halls such as the “Entrepot” (Bruges) and “De Centrale” (Ghent), they were praised as the best belgian ball group in the annual poll of the well-known folk site “Folkroddels”. On top of it all, folkies voted Peut-être Demain to a second place in the category ‘groups which will break through in 2009’. The summer of 2009 was very busy for them. They played at well-known folkfestivals such as Na Fir Bolg, Folk 'n Ro, Boombalfestival and a Celtic Folkfestival in the Netherlands. They also participated in the contest of "Het Lindeboom-Festival" in France where they became "Le Dauphin 2009" and took the mainprice, which was: a CD-recording. The main act at this festival was the famous Corsican group: I Muvrini. In October they were selected to represent Belgium at the Nanning International Folk Song Arts Festival in China. One of the biggest festivals of South-China and even there the enthusiasm was amazing. In 2011, the band was invited to play a gig at the big Körro Folkmusic Festival in Sweden.
Discography: Peut-être Demain recorded the song "Julie" in a studio for the Boombal-cd, volume II. On that cd, they appear next to major names of the folk world: Kadril, Laïs, Urban Trad, Ishtar, Yann Tiersen, Ambrozijn,.... This cd was released in September 2008. In 2009 they were elected 'Le Dauphin 2009' at the 'Het Lindeboom Festival' in France. This means they caught the main prize, the opportunity to record their first full cd in the Wildboar studio of Erwin Libbrecht. This cd has been available since July 2010 and is the indisputable proof that this young band can, besides having wild parties, make exceptionally good music. Absolutely worthwhile!!
