Tri Yann

Created in Nantes in 1971, Breton group Tri Yann continued to become perhaps one of the most important folk-rock rings to emerge from France. Founded with the trio of Jean Chocun, Jean-Paul Corbineau, and Jean-Louis Jossic, the band’s name actually means “Three Johns.” The group’s early years had been largely focused on traditional Breton folk and Celtic music and highlighted acoustic instruments just like the psaltery, bombarde, dulcimer, and mandoloncello. Using the discharge of 1976’s La Découverte ou l’Ignorance, Tri Yann’s audio begun to incorporate even more rock-oriented equipment like bass, drums, and guitar. They also begun to present even more progressive strains, saving several idea albums and using elaborate stage outfits. Following their initial live record and anthology within the middle-’80s, Tri Yann released Le Vaisseau de Pierre, that was in line with the comic reserve of the same name. Through the entire ’90s, the band’s account would continue steadily to shuffle, with Chocun, Corbineau, and Jossic generally remaining on the helm. Their tenth record, 1995’s Portraits, handled various historical statistics in Breton background, while its follow-up, 2001’s The Pelegrin, explored music from several different Celtic countries and offered because the band’s 30th wedding anniversary record. Tri Yann continued to be strong and energetic through the 2000s, portion up a set of sea-inspired albums known as Marines (2003) and Abyss (2007) before crossing another milestone with 2011’s Rummadoù (Years), their 15th studio room record. A live record documenting their 40th wedding anniversary special event in 2011 found its way to the springtime of 2012 and highlighted music spanning their whole profession. La Belle Enchantée, another conceptual LP coping with stories from Breton mythology, premiered in 2016.
