La Chavannée with Dave Shepherd & Bof! (French evening)
Dave Shepherd is well known as the fiddle player in Blowzabella and has a vast repertoire of dances and fiddle music from England and western Europe. Anna is a dancer and musician with a longstanding interest in French traditional dance, and has performed with Karen Tweed and others in The Chase and Circa Compania, both as a dancer and player of the diatonic accordion.
Since 2000, Bof! have worked as a four-piece band specializing in traditional French and Breton music for dancing or listening to. During that time we have played in folk clubs, for dance groups and at festivals in England and France, as well as organising regular French and Breton dance workshops and public dances in East Anglia, as part of the Burybal group. The band’s repertoire is mainly traditional music from Central France and Brittany, but also includes compositions by members of the band and others. Photo of Bof!
