Dentdelion / La Tondeuse / Roues et Archets (RA014)
A highly original album by this unique, two-family band comprised of veteran fiddler-singer Claude Methe (Reve du Diable, Entourloupe, Ni Sarpe Ni Branche), "Ameriquoise" guitarist-singer-foot percussionist Dana Whittle, flutist Denise Levac (Manigance) and their equally talented progeny : Colin Savoie-Levac (banjo, mandolin, guitar, foot percussion) and Beatrix Methe (fiddle, vocals). Fifteen tracks, freshly plucked from the trad-folk garden and tossed into a delicious "salade trad", seasoned with spicy reels and savory songs. An authentic and joyfully honest sound.
Un album tres original par cette unique formation bi-familiale qui comprend le veteran violoneux-chanteur Claude Methe (Reve du Diable, Entourloupe, Ni Sarpe Ni Branche), la guitariste-chanteuse-podorythmiste "ameriquoise" Dana Whittle (Jeter le Pont), la flutiste Denise Levac (Manigance) ainsi que leur talentueuse progeniture : Colin Savoie-Levac (banjo, mandoline, guitare, podorythmie...) et Beatrix Methe (violon, voix). Quinze pieces fraichement cueillies du jardin trad-folk pour nous nourrir d'une salade-trad delicieuse, assaisonnee de reels pimentes et chansons savoureuses. Une musique vraie et joyeusement honnete.
