Cri du Canard

Wooden flute, diatonic button accordion, fiddle

Dave Gray, Sam Partridge, Grace Smith
North East


Le Coin-Coin (Quack-Quack) is perhaps the most well-known Cri du Canard (Call of the Duck) but coming in at a close second is this newly formed trio of musicians. Grace, Sam, and Dave intertwine the fiddle, flute and melodeon through exploration of the traditional folk-dance repertoire of France. With a relaxed and natural style, Cri du Canard invite you to dance freely, or simply sit back, enjoy, and be welcomed into their musical world.
One student […] who is generally very angry with everything and very hard to engage was absolutely transfixed by the music and the musicians throughout the entire sessions.
