Wild Willy Barrett French Connection


Featuring an original melange of French, Irish and English acoustic arrangements, using everything from a guitar and cello, to Irish pipes and banjo, all under the direction of the inimitable Wild Willy Barrett. Known as the Godfather of Grunge Folk and something of a musical prodigy having learned to play the ukelele at the age of four, Willy describes himself as “an experimental multi-instrumentalist.” Best known for his partnership with John Oway, it is the gentler side of Wild that has emerged during his collaboration with this acoustic quartet.
