Bluegrass at Theatre du Chatelet

Giles Apap and Blue Railroad Train perform in ParisThe European Bluegrass Blog has an interesting piece up about an historic concert at the renowned Th?©?¢tre du Ch?¢telet in Paris.

This past October, noted French violinist Gilles Apap was featured in concert with the Pas-de-Loup Philharmonic Orchestra. Though recognized primarily as a classical violinist, Apap has a fondness for a variety of folk music styles, including bluegrass.

The abovementioned concert in Paris began with a classical repertoire, only to conclude with a number of bluegrass tunes performed with the members of Blue Railroad Train. The grand finale was an arrangement of Bill Monroe’s Old Dangerfield with the full orchestra.
