Stumble (Mister Midnight)

The album of Mister Midnight will delight the lovers of banjo 5 strings. A joyful and self-confident banjo which knows how to be precise, nervous and sensitive without ever sinking into the demonstrative, in the confluence off 2 major influences : bluegrass and Irish music. Recorded almost 10 years ago, the album did not take a wrinkle. In 2009, the musicians of Mister Midnight (2 Irish and 3 Breton musicians) are more rarely met on the scenes where they had marked their public by their energy and their musicality, but some whispers that they did not say their last words ! In 11 titles among which certain are originals, discover or rediscover the pleasure of an essentially acoustic sound mixing the warm and hoarse voice of Paul Rodden (singing / 5 strings banjo), with the violin sometimes biting sometimes dreaming of Fred Bouley, with the cittern and guitar of Gildas Renaud in rhythmic trance, with the bouncing double bass of Charles Guilbaud, joined by the crazy percussion of Sean O' Faigain + guests.
