A l'occasion de notre tournée en Irlande, Louis-Jacques a eu à traduire notre biographie. La version française n'apparait plus sur notre site mais la tentation est trop grande pour y résister de vous dévoiler cette prose tintée de british humour !
Louis-Jacques Suignard, is a famous Breton singer. Winner of many prizes, the most prestigious of which being Kan ar Bobl. His repertoire includes Breton traditional singing (Kan ha diskan and kan a-boz) . He is also a song-writer who has released 2 albums of his own songs and writes songs for other singers. Louis-Jacques sings in Breton, English and French. He has completed a Master's Thesis on traditional Breton singing and teaches singing. He is a poor guitar player and a desperate bodran player but fortunately he is an honourable cook.
Olivier Adelen is a composer of musical pieces for films and documentaries. He has a passion for the accordion, he is also a piano and keyboard player. He has explored different musical worlds including traditional music, blues and Jazz. He was a member of "Dent Genver" (fest noz), "Les maudits matous" (Québec music). He is a painter and drama player which is quite obvious to an exhilarated audience when he performs on stage, where he shows wits and humour. Both Louis-Jacques and Hug think Olivier is weird. Olivier simply reckons he is strange.
