A soulful, freewheeling set by the Franco-American Cory Seznec (formerly of the much praised world-roots outfit the Groanbox Boys) encapsulates the musician’s eclectic taste and experiences from across the globe.
This music is joyous, a vibrant mix of American roots, country and jazz with a twist of African blues.
New Music From the Old, is being brought to the county by Live & Local.
The show is interspersed with tales and anecdotes that influenced the songs and Cory is constantly switching between the raw and stomping and the charmingly sophisticated.
