Creating Authentic Breton Music:Poor Man’s Fortune

When one hears the sound of the bombard as well as the binou  one will realize that this could only come from one place in the world-Brittany. For years now, Austen, Texas based Poor Man’s Fortune has been recording and performing authentic Breton music. This 5-piece band is consist of French, Scottish and American members who are recognized in their individual fields as accomplished musicians. And accidental browsing through YouTube brought them to my attention and from this moment on, their albums are a welcomed addition to my growing collection.

  1. I was afraid with all of those musicians that it would be a wall of sound! It was – but in a really great way!! I will take a look at their music online. Thanks. 🙂
