The Seznec Brothers are the Franco-American musicians Cory and Yann Seznec. Involved in different musical worlds and living in different cities, the bros got together as much as they could over the past year to put together this batch of tunes that feature three re-invented traditional tunes and eight originals.
Cory sings and plays guitars, banjos (gourd and open-backed), and charango. Yann sings and plays guitars, keys/piano, some bass, and trumpet.
Several of their musician friends joined forces with them to back them up on various tracks: Thomas Bailey on fiddle, percussionist Paul Clifford, bassist Stephen Harrison, Pedro Kouyaté on kamelngoni (Malian harp), percussionist Renaud Ollivier, and drummer Peter Vilk.
All music was written by the Seznec Brothers, except Arkansas Sheik (trad.), Mother’s Last Word To Her Son (Washington Phillips), and Tryin’ To Get Home (Rev. Gary Davis).
Recorded by Yann Seznec in London, Edinburgh, Annapolis, Ervy-le-Châtel, and finally at Studio La Fugitive in Paris, France.
