Les Beaux Chemins (tm)

 

A unique blend of French music and dance by Jutta & the Hi-Dukes (tm)

 

Call for details (847) 864–1022 between 10 AM and 10 PM C.S.T.

Including yet extending beyond the Edith Piaf-style Cabaret “Chansons”, this wide-ranging program will add sparkle and fun to your concert series, festival, party, or Bastille Day event.

 

With Celtic-sounding French Canadian dance tunes juxtaposed with Medieval and folklorique songs as well as the more recent “Chansons”, this eclectic and fresh program surprises and pleases everyone from the Francophile to the casual listener.

 

Please note that, upon request, the band can also present a fine array of classic American Big-Band style dance songs, 50s acoustic rock songs, as well as dance music from other European ethnic traditions.

 

The multi-instrumentalist core duet plays flute, mandolin, violin, guitar, and percussion. Both are singers and both speak French.

 

Want a larger group? Additional instruments, including acoustic bass and drums, can be added upon request.
