July, Wednesday 4th, Bof!

Bof

We are pleased to welcome back our (not so) old friends Bof! In 2000, Bof!  started playing as a four-piece band specializing in traditional French and Breton music for dancing or listening to. During that time we have played in folk clubs, for dance groups and at festivals in England and France, as well as organising regular French and Breton dance workshops and public dances in East Anglia, as part of the Burybal and Prêt à Danser groups. In recent years Breton singer Gwendal Moële has joined our line-up on many of our gigs. The band’s repertoire is mainly traditional music from Central France and Brittany, but also includes compositions by members of the band and others.
