Anne Niepold (diatonic button accordion) & Gregory Jolivet (hurdy gurdy). SOLO/DUO live at Pebbles Tavern, Watchet TA23 0AN. http://www.pebblestavern.co.uk/
Anne Niepold (Belgium) is a force of nature. Brash, adventurous and phenomenally skilled, she takes the humble accordion in startling directions.
Gregory Jolivet (France) is simply one of the best hurdy-gurdy players in the world – funky, melodic, poly-rhythmic and effortlessly tuneful.
Both very much in demand, this year they’ve made time to team up to play concerts across Europe. Expect great tunes from their respective folk traditions and their own brilliantly crafted contemporary compositions designed to test these traditional instruments to the limit. They’re both charming, charismatic and very funny too! Musical satisfaction guaranteed.
Anne & Greg are both tutors at Halsway Manor and we are delighted to support them in promoting this unique concert, hosted by our great friends at Pebbles Tavern!
