The Life and work of Kristen Noguès, Tristan Le Govic and Patsy Seddon.

April 4@11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Among the pioneers of the Celtic harp, Kristen Noguès (14th March 1952 – 5th July 2007) remains one of the most creative and visionary musicians ever. Often avant-garde, still very modern on both acoustic and electro harp, Kristen’s music reflects the main artistic movement of her time, intermingling Breton traditional music with Jazz and Contemporary music. This workshop on the 10th anniversary of her death, will celebrate her legacy as well as providing historical background since the 1970s. She was first invited to perform at the festival in 1984 by Patsy Seddon and they remained friends. Patsy will be on hand to add some personal memories.
