ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Claire Boucher is a traditional singer from Sarzeau, on the Presqu'Ile de Rhuys, in southern Brittany. Currently living in Montréal, Québec, she found many of these songs in the traditional music archives in Brittany (DASTUM); some of the songs are well known but others have never before been recorded. Some of the songs are in French; others are in Breton, which is a form of Gaelic closely related to Welsh. The album's title, Rhoé-Inis (Royal Island) is the old Breton name for the Presqu'Ile de Rhuys.

Focusing on simple, traditional arrangements, Claire is accompanied on some tracks by accordion, smallpipes, guitar, flutes, acoustic bass, and jaw harp. One track is a brief story in the Breton language, recited by Hervé Connan, a native Breton speaker from northern Brittany.

Guest musicians include: Jeremiah McLane (accordion), Timothy Cummings (Scottish smallpipes), Corey DiMario (bass), Steve Jones (fiddle), Brad Hurley (flutes, whistles,12-string guitar, jaw harp), and Alan Jones (Northumbrian and Scottish smallpipes). Recorded at Southpaw Studios, Bernardston, Massachusetts, by Tommy Byrnes. Mastering by Colin McCaffrey.
