“Energetic, yet refined, expressive but totally rooted in the groove, these two musicians effortlessly delight and compel the listener. A beautiful combination of English and French music that is superb to listen to and amazing to dance to!” – John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera, Morris Offspring and Dipper & Daniels).
