Album Notes
Poor Man’s Fortune is North America’s premier exponent of the music of Brittany, but have never stood still long enough to be categorized as a Breton band. Combining Breton, Cajun, Scottish, French & Irish music with original tunes and even more original ideas, Poor Man's Fortune is ‘World Music’ in a world of its own. Breton melodies floting over Cajun songs, Bagpipes on 2-steps and waltzes, plinns, jigs, an dros, ridées, gavottes, made-up folk dances, songs of joy, sadness and murder... all featuring an incredible assemblage of traditional and modern instruments, some of which were invented by the band, including bouzouki, dulcitare, biniou kozh, bombarde, highland pipes, small pipes, fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, accordion, cor anglais, electric bass and all manner of drums, wooden flutes & whistles. Based in Austin, ‘Peoples Republic of Texas’, Its lineup includes musicians from France, Scotland and deep in the heart of Cajun country.

“...an early odds-on favorite for Celtic Album of the Year!” —Southwest Celtic Music Association
