Burgess & Pariselle on tour in France and England April/May 2016

On April 27 I'm off to start a tour of France and England with the inimitable Emmanuel Pariselle. Over two weeks we are playing an assortment of venues from pubs to folk clubs and private houses. 

Emmanuel Pariselle is a well-known figure in the folk scene on both sides of the Channel.  As an instrumentalist (on melodeon, one-row accordion, concertina and flutes) he has collaborated with artists like Marc Robine, Mairtin O’Connor and the group La Bergère, as well as in duos with Didier Oliver and Christian Maës. Emmanuel is also a celebrated songwriter. 

Together, we present a unique and eclectic repertoire of traditional and self-penned songs (in English, French, Norwegian and, on a good day, Italian…) in addition to dance tunes from all over.
