Quartier Francais

We have a strong European contingent this year, and here’s some more representation – this time from France.

HervĂ© Parent and his group Quartier Francais were thrilled to be asked to be involved, and we’re just as happy to have them.

They’ve managed to bring bluegrass to France, and in doing so cover the music of Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Little Feat and Bill Monroe. Well worth a listen.

Last year they released their first album – Yetotan – and they’re proving a big hit on YouTube as well.

For this project, we’re honoured to include their outstanding cover of Mandolin Rain, which they’ve kindly donated to our project. Pick it up from the downloads page.

Merci beaucoup, mes amis!
