CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL

QUIMPER 2020

L'or des Mac Crimmon

Not a Scotsman but a Breton, Patrick Molard has become one of the airs of the dynasty of pipers, the Mac Crimmons from the Isle of Skye, great masters of the pibroch. To pass on this music of a surprising modernity, he deciphers 18th century manuscripts following the method of his masters: linking all the pieces to emotions and legends. The humour, the tragedy, the myth, the history intercepts to feed the inquiry of a lifetime, going from the stomach of the bagpipes to jazz, passing by the court of the Kings.
