Tri Yann - La Découverte Ou L'ignorance (1976)





















This band is the most important exponent of urban folk-rock from Brittany. Over the years, their music has ranged from punchy acoustic arrangements of traditional songs to rock & roll based on the Breton and Gallo traditions.

An excellent album, this was their first to use electric guitars, drums and other rock instruments in a mostly folk setting. ~ Steve Winick, All Music Guide

Many thanks, Lizardson, for another wonderful gem. I bought this LP 20+ years ago when I was a young man rambling through Bretagne. It's been one of my all-time favorites. Highly recommended for fans of 70s era folk-rock. Tri Yann have their vocals very together---"Complainte Gallaise" is stunning. And they're very tasteful in how they use bagpipes, bombardes and other traditional elements. "Jument de Michao" will definitely get your blood pumping. This one's a real classic.
