BALFOLK EVENING WITH DUO BOTTASSO & more artists
The brothers Bottasso, Nicolo on violin and Simon on the diatonic accordion, offer a show of traditional ball music, full of emotions and improvisations. Reinterpreting music belonging to the folk tradition, or new compositions by folk musicians, the duo is always looking for a compromise between the intimate delicacy and the great youthful energy that connotes the two musicians: all this combined with the fraternal complicity bound by the same passions and the desire to communicate emotions through their music.
The duo has participated in important traditional music festivals, including the Festival of Monte Carlo Printemps des Arts (2012), Festival International de Maitres et Luthieres Sonneurs of Saint Chartier (2009), Festival Damada (2007) and actively participates in quality of teachers and directors of the project orchestral ensemble called Folkestra Bricherasio.
