Sheffield Eurosession are delighted to welcome Trois Pas d’Ici – a great new trio of three young women from the south of France.
This young French trio play wonderful traditional music from Poitou in the south of France, as well as Auvergne and Sweden. With two driving fiddles and diatonic accordion, they produce some great dance music from their region of Poitou including the Congo, Avant-deux, Maraichine and Bal Limousine. But they also play standard balfolk dances such as bourées, mazurka, scottish, valse, etc. and some less known such as Rond d’argentons or Bourée 3 temps from the Morvan region. And to top it all they also sing in harmony for dancing – a beautiful experience.
As they say “hear our strings (vocal and steel), bellows, keys and bow.” with Nina Lachia and Marie Peyrat both on violin and Lucile Marsac on diatonic accordion, as well as voices and bellows. Listen at: https://soundcloud.com/3pdchttps://fr-fr.facebook.com/3PasdIci/
