This is Florence Glorion a player of the chromatic button accordion, who duets often with diato player Florence Pindivic. They host a site together, Diou Flo, which focuses primarily on Breton music. I love both of the Florences’ music, and will feature Pindivic next week.

Unknown Tune in Four
The Theme of the Month at mel,net is “Something in Four.” It’s for the odds and sods tunes. The march, polka, or whatever that seems somehow different and out of place. This tune is one that I learned from a fiddler about fifteen years ago. I don’t know if I ever knew what it was called, but I certainly don’t now. I can’t honestly even say what type of tune it is or its provenance. It sounds Breton? Maybe and an dro? If YOU know, please say so in the comments.
P.S., I used my phone for this recording and I’m still figuring out the best way to do that. I’ll do better next time.
Alain Pennec, Breton Accordion
A bit of Alain Pennec to start off your week. He’s known for deploying interesting band arrangements, so capturing him solo is a special treat. Enjoy.
