Music Arran Presents : Les Trois Blondes

Les Tois Blondes

Les Trois Blondes are the only band in Scotland specialising in Bal Musette, the French café music of Paris. Perhaps to one’s surprise, there is a very strong tradition with Scottish accordionists of playing this style of music which is mostly in waltz tempo. The band comprises John Burns (lead accordion), George Burns, his brother (2nd accordion) and Fergus Wood (drums and compere). John Burns is the current Musette Champion of Scotland and former All-Scotland Accordion Champion.

Much of the music played by the band features numbers made famous by Maurice Chevalier and Edith Piaf, the little sparrow and several items in their programme of over 80 compositions are by the two Burns brothers. Musette goes well with French wines and French cooking and recently the band played at a very romantic event on 14 February 2013 in Café Sante, one of Perth’s leading French restaurants.

When not playing musette, the band’s mainline work is ceilidh music, which has taken them all round the World.

Trois Blondes is a double entendre in the context of the band, it means “Three Pints of Lager”, please!
