Product Description

Introducing two musicians from either side of the English Channel playing the very best in traditional Irish music: LoÏc Bléjean (uilleann pipes and whistles), and Tad Sargent (bouzouki-guitar, bodhran and vocals) …

On this, their very fine self-titled debut, the multi-instrumentalist duo demonstrate startling virtuosity in both their individual playing and complex interplay between them ensemble across a prime selection of their favourite traditional pieces together with fresh and emotive covers of evergreens in Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing’, Davy Spillane’s ‘Atlantic Bridge and Jimmy McCarthy’s ‘Missing You’, amongst others.

Tad has worked with many well-known and respected musicians, both in the studio and in live performance throughout Europe and is a founder member of acclaimed Cross Harbour, whose eponymous first album was released in 2014.

In-demand pipes player, Breton-born LoÏc has played residencies at the world famous McGurk’s in St Louis, Missouri, and been a member of  numerous bands including Glaz, the French-Canadian Gwazigan and Carré Manchot, one of the leading ‘fez-noz’ (‘night festival’) bands.

Pedigree counts – and no more so than on this astonishing and highly entertaining display of Celtic musicianship and musical interplay.
