Doolin’, the unmistakable name of Irish music on the Bolegason stage

the essential
Les Doolin’ is an irresistible Irish pop “made in” Tarn lands. With its traditional music mixed with an innovative groove, the group has succeeded in establishing itself as a world reference of the genre. The Doolin’ will occupy the stage of the Bolegason de Castres this Friday, January 27th.

Founded in 2005 between Puylaurens and the Toulouse region, the Doolin group experienced a meteoric rise in France and abroad. It was in the United States, in Nashville more precisely, that these six musicians from the region met their success story. Carried by the deep voice of their singer Wilfried Besse and the traditional instruments of the genre, Doolin’ sublimates Irish music and goes beyond the boundaries of the genre.

The group is making a comeback with their new EP “Circus Boy”

In their love for traditional music, we perceive an innovative mix, composed of subtle touches of jazz, rock, funk and even hip-hop. Today, after a last album recorded in Nashville and three years of touring the biggest gatherings and folk festivals in the United States and Canada, Doolin is back with his new EP “Circus Boy”, still under the signature from the prestigious American label Compass Records.

Once again the Doolin’nous offer music with contagious energy, whose warmth radiates throughout the world. It is at the Bolegason’s invitation that they return to their native land, 13 years after making their debut at a Bolegers party in 2010 and securing a date in 2014.

Friday evening, they will share the stage with the multi-instrumentalist Zitoune who will ensure the first part of the evening. An incorrigible adventurer, ZItoune will deliver music inspired by his travels and marked by the timbres of instruments from all walks of life. A “one man band” with luminous music and irresistible dynamism. An enticing poster for this last weekend of January.
