January, Wednesday 3rd, Salmanazar

 Salmanazar are Philippe Laussine, Sébastien Benoît, and Cedric Martin. This trio play really danceable and traditional French music on box, pipes and hurdy-gurdy. Many of you will know Cedric from the duos Expire and Moussaka. Philippe has huge experience having played with Cliff Stapleton and Nigel Eaton in the past. He plays on electric hurdy-gurdy like Gregory Jolivet of Blowzabella. Sebastien has also played in various bands for many years on a range of large and small pipes and whistles. So a new trio of experienced musicians who explore the roots of their respective instruments (hurdy-gurdy, diatonic accordion, bagpipes) giving them a new dimension. The character of their music is always drawn from the dance rhythms of Western Europe and especially central France. You can hear them here
