Bof!

Music from Central France and Brittany

WHAT WE DO
Bof! is a four-piece band specializing in traditional French and Breton music for dancing and listening  to. We have played in folk clubs, for dance groups and at festivals in England and France, as well as  organising regular workshops and public dances in East Anglia, originally  Burybal  and now as part of Prêt à danser group.
We are now involved in the running of Hadleigh Folk Club’s French Music and Dance Weekend which takes place every spring.

Our repertoire, which combines instrumentals and songs, is mainly traditional music from Central  France and Brittany, but also includes more recent compositions, by members of the band and other.

We have made five CD recordings, all of which are available from our website.
