Breton Music to Die For

blog :
June 2010 # 20

Dom Duff is one of the most exciting and innovative musicians from Brittany, much sought after as a studio and concert guitarist and singer. He is also a wonderful singer-songwriter who started solo in 2000, after being driving force the infamous band Diwall. He was born in bro Bagan (Pagan county), a little place on the north-west coast of Brittany and, like his parents, speaks breton language fluently.
Crossing breton influences and great guitar licks, all releases are in a cutting edge production.
The new album ROC'H, is in a complete studio mode. It contains a repertoire of refreshing unusual songs inspired by or adopted from his native breton culture. Blending great breton guitar licks, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, words, rythms, melody with folk/rock energy. The result is inventive and no doubt something that falls into the rabidly developing category of "power folk".
Dom first cd "Straed an Amann" (Butter street), as been awared best first breton cd 2004.
"...when Dom sings his breton language, it sounds like an international one." Ouest-France.
"I love those people who are revitalising breton music. Dom DufF for example is very personable, his music comes from the heart." Alan Stivell.Breton Magazine 08/06.
