Event description

Description

Music Under The Mountains are delighted to welcome back two giants of Breton Music to kick off the 2018 festival with an intimate performance in St. Kevins Church of Ireland, Jean-Michel Veillon & Yvon Riou.


Born on the north coast of Brittany, Jean-Michel Veillon has achieved widespread recognition as one of world’s premier traditional flute players.


Yvon Riou (guitar) also from the north coast of Brittany has toured Ireland extensively and is a member of the group Mountain House.


Created in 1993, the duo Veillon-Riou was the first flute and guitar duo dedicated to Breton music, playing in innumerable festoù-noz in Brittany, but also in concert with a repertoire extending to Irish & Scottish music and beyond. Jean-Michel & Yvon have toured extensively in Ireland (recording a live album – « Beo » - at the Culturlann McAdam O Fiaich in Belfast) but also played in Poland, Italy, England, USA and Canada). Their latest album « Deus an Aod d'ar Menez » was released in March 2017.
