We play and dance to traditional or new French and Breton tunes:  in couples, or in lines without partners.   In Bath we play in the bar, and in Bristol we have an upstairs room to ourselves, with plenty of room for dancing.  So Bristol  caters more for dancers.  We usually have  bagpipes , hurdy-gurdy;  accordions, melodeons, and concertina;  fiddles and whistles. See videos here.

This session is more than 20 years old,  originally started  in Bristol by Andy Letcher.  For our dancing in the Bristol streets  see videos here    and  see Mike Finn’s  fine photos here


Everyone is welcome to play, dance or listen.
