Les Sonneurs de la côte

Sonneurs de la cote

Sonneurs de la cote

Performing primarily with bagpipes from central France, the band “Les Sonneurs De La Côte” is strongly influenced by traditional music. Enriched by the sounds of an accordion, a guitar, a violin, a clarinet and percussion, the band interprets traditional pieces, contemporary melodies and some compositions written by members of the band which all have a common point; music to dance to (waltz, bourrées, mazurkas, branles, scottisches…). The musicians are connected to their home port Calais and to its renowned music conservatory where they all come from.

On Saturday the CAN CAN  dancers will be the Phoenix Performing Arts from Canterbury

and DAPA from Deal on Sunday.
