Sweet Joe Pye & Lucas Henri

Sweet Joe Pye and Lucas Henri explore traditional Appalachian music in dynamic new arrangements.
Fascinated as much by the rich stories of old ballads as by the melodies and pulsations of fiddle tunes, this trio revisits these diverse genres to weave unexpected links. Having traveled old-times and bluegrass scenes in the United States, Canada, France and the Netherlands, Annick, Lucas and Henri take the stage as a trio for the first time at the Festival Herbe Bleue to share their varied repertoire in an original program of arrangements and improvisations.

Blue Lass

Blue Lass is a group of five musicians (acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, double bass and clawhammer banjo) playing a combination of traditional bluegrass and old songs and instruments. Their music sounds raw and organic and their sets range from high-energy instrumentals to moody songs that transport the listener into their stories.

Their music sounds raw and organic and their sets range from high-energy instrumentals to moody songs that transport the listener into their stories.

Their dynamic performance, each stepping up to the mic to improvise a solo, gives their shows an authentic vintage feel.

Phil Jamison conference : The American Square Dance: The French Connection

The American square dance has often been portrayed as Anglo-Celtic heritage from the British Isles. These dances, however, are a uniquely American hybrid that developed during the nineteenth century, and like American folk music, they reflect not only the history, but the racial and ethnic diversity of the United States. In this presentation, we will discuss the multicultural roots and historical development of these dances and identify the contributions of earlier British, African, Native American, and most-significantly, French dance forms that combined to make them uniquely American.

Carte blanche to Arianna Monteverdi (feat. Julianne Joe)

Arianna Monteverdi explores through her compositions a folk and Americana repertoire, more rock recently. It is the multicultural richness constitutive of this music, and all the photographic and filmographic imagination which is linked to it, which led her to embrace these influences. About ten years ago, she discovered Old-Time music, and then fell in love with the clawhammer banjo, fascinated by its hypnotic groove, and its melodic complementarity with the fiddle. It was during the Rencontres Old-Time in Auvergne that she met Julianne Joe, another French indie folk-rock singer, and an excellent fiddler. Julianne is a prolific composer and self-taught musician. His voice with moving Celtic accents, and his powerful guitar and banjo playing oscillates between a delicate and airy folk and a more nervous blues-rock which takes us to the side of Ireland and the United States.


Aug. 11th 21:00

Jurassic Grass is a Bluegrass group born in 2021 in Toulouse invoking the folk and old time inclinations of bluegrass, by making small detours by some compositions in French. Two guitars, a banjo, three voices, give a new place to the pieces and explore folk lands of diminished chords.

Three remarkably accomplished young musicians come together in T’Monde, the Louisiana phenomenon that Offbeat Magazine has called “a creative fusion of classic country and out-of-the-way Cajun.” With a combined 10 Grammy nominations between members Drew Simon, Megan Constantin, and Kelli Jones, T’Monde brings influences ranging from early Country music to ancient French and Creole ballads to present day Cajun music. Whether it be with their instruments or their voices, these three continue to showcase their unique sound that is unmatched in Cajun music today.
