Accordion to Him: Samuel Le Hénanff and "C'est dans la Ville de Bayonne"

Today's song, an instrumental called C'est dans la Ville de Bayonne, is by Samuel Le Hénanff. Recognized as one of the best diatonic accordionists of his generation, Hénanff is from Brittany and is steeped in the Breton language and music. Conscious of preserving the music of his region and culture, he studies musicology and is engaged in collecting music to preserve and record. He performs solo, in a duo and in a trio. You can find C'est dans la Ville de Bayonne on his 2009 album Accordion Diatonique.
