Born on the docks of Dunkirk by firelight, this seven-piece assault to harbours, pubs and taverns is a melting pot of reggae punk, Irish shanties, French ballads, Celtic rock.
Regularly touring Brittany, Germany and England this band are no stranger to the folk-pub-festival scene.
A big band with a big sound that loves to cram into cosy spaces in pub corners and busk till dawn.
Performing primarily with bagpipes from central France, the band “Les Sonneurs De La Côte” is strongly influenced by traditional music. Enriched by the sounds of an accordion, a guitar, a violin, a clarinet and percussion, the band interprets traditional pieces, contemporary melodies and some compositions written by members of the band which all have a common point; music to dance to (waltz, bourrées, mazurkas, branles, scottisches…). The musicians are connected to their home port Calais and to its renowned music conservatory where they all come from
