Item Description

In the northwest of France lies the province of Brittany, where a unique Celtic culture has flourished for centuries. Nearly twenty years ago, Kornog merged traditional Breton tunes with a Scottish vocal repertoire, creating an exciting new acoustic music. The quartet’s complex arrangements result in a style quite unlike any other, at once graceful and thrilling, ancient and contemporary.

Now, fiddler Christian Lemaitre (Celtic Fiddle Festival), flutist Jean-Michel Veillon, vocalist/bouzouki player Jamie McMenemy and new guitarist Nicolas Quemener (Arcady) bring us Kornog’s first recording in over a decade. Named for a river near the recording studio in Brittany, Korong is not a misprint but a playful anagram, and like its namesake, it travels deep into the heart of Brittany’s musical landscape.
