Les Trois Blondes is the only band in Scotland specialising in Bal Musette, the French Cafe Music of Paris.
Perhaps it is a surprise, but there is a very strong tradition with Scottish accordionists of playing this style of music which is mostly in waltz tempo. The band comprises John Burns (lead accordion), George Burns, his brother (2nd accordion) and Fergus Wood (drums and compere). John Burns is the current Musette Champion of Scotland and former All-Scotland Accordion Champion.
Much of the music played by the band features tunes made famous by Maurice Chevalier and Edith Piaf, the little sparrow, and several items in their programme of over 80 compositions are by the two Burns brothers.
Musette goes well with French wines and French cooking and recently the band played at a very romantic event on 14 February 2013 in Cafe Sante, one of Perth’s leading French restaurants.
When not playing musette, the bands mainline work is as the Kinlochard ceilidh Band which has taken them all over the world
Trois Blondes is a double entendre in the context of the band, it means “Three Pints of Lager”, please!
The band is available to play at any occasion or event such as a Parisian night in Scotlandwhere a flavour of Bal Musette accordion music would enhance the event. The band is also available as a duo, Pas de Deux.
