FRIDAY MUSIC: Breton Lays, by JD

Staying with the French theme of recent weeks, here is some very different and distinctive music and dance this week from the region of Bretagne, Brittany. This is the Celtic fringe of France and the final video here is Himne de la Bretagne "Bro gozh ma zadoù " which you will recognise as exactly the same as the Welsh equivalent, Land of my Fathers.

Ah, I see Alan Stivell at the end. I borrowed an LP by him from Rotherham Central Library in the late 1970s: "Renaissance of the Celtic Harp". I ended up buying several of his albums.
