, in association with the ukullele & Other Machines
present Anglo-French acoustic five-piece, Topette!!
return to the UK for a spring tour in April / May 2019.
This band is a must see, for anyone interested in traditional European dance music, for folk fans, French dancers and discerning listeners alike.
The band’s debut album, C’est le Pompon...
was well received across the continent, and
they have continued to thrill audiences, with their unique, energetic take on instrumental
folk tunes. This tour will see the band firing on all cylinders, as they prepare to make their
second album, Rhododendron
, to be released later this year. Featuring the peerless
diatonic button accordion maestro, (and multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winner), Andy
, alongside the “enfant terrible” French bagpiper and banjo plucker, Julien
Cartonnet, with James Delarre
on violin, Tania Buisse
on Bodhrán and Barnaby Stradling
acoustic bass guitar, these guys and gal are literally having a bal!“Sublime musicianship and a thumping set of tunes.”
