About Me
Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection:

From a cafe in Paris, via a hoolie in Dublin, to a night out in New Orleans with rip-roaring fiddle and banjo – this band does it all!

Touring in support of their new vinyl album, ‘A Mange-Tout Far’, this diverse collection of very talented musicians has come together to put on a fabulous show under the direction of the inimitable Wild Willy Barrett.

Willy, best known for his partnership with John Otway, has had a long and varied career. He has toured with U2, Police, Madness and many more, and his wonderful acoustic guitar playing is featured on ‘The Contemporary Folk Guitar’ album alongside Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Gordon Giltrap & Ralph McTell.

It is the gentler, acoustic side of Willy that emerges with French Connection, as well as the wry on-stage humour for which he is well known. Since their birth a few years ago the group, featuring John Devine and Mary Holland, has gone from strength to strength. Their innovative arrangements are beautifully performed on instruments including the guitar, cello, fiddle, banjo and, of course, John’s lovingly restored uilleann pipes.

French singer Aurora Colson takes centre stage, giving heartfelt performances of songs ranging from bluegrass to ballads and acoustic blues, with haunting Irish melodies and even a touch of Piaf thrown into the mix; the result is captivating.

Speaking on Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection, John says:
“It’s unlike anything you will ever see or hear with the range of music and musicianship. Willy holds it all together. He’s one of this country’s most overlooked musicians.”
Come and enjoy a wonderful evening of unique and fresh musical entertainment, all overlaid with a large dose of wry humour and very different from anything else you will experience in the UK at the moment.

House Concert Tour UK/ EU

I'm currently in the studio recording my 4th album of the year. I have a large selection of songs that have remained unrecorded - one is now on a shortlist for use in a TV documentary - and decided I should put this right. The first three are A New Day, The Journey and Work In Progress and I am now looking to play a few acoustic house concerts to promote them, ideally in July/ August.Here's a link to the title track from the second album of this year Listen to The Journey by CJay #np on…See More
