“Muddy Gurdy – The Movie” is out!
When the hurdy-gurdy meets the North Mississippi Hill Country blues…
The movie made by Yannick Demaison / Biscuit Production chronicles the amazing journey of a dedicated trio of French musicians (hurdy-gurdy player Gilles Chabenat, guitarist and vocalist Tia Gouttebel, percussionnist Marc Glomeau) and French sound engineer Pierre Bianchi. Their dream was to marry the haunting sound of the French hurdy-gurdy with the Hill Country blues of North Mississippi, which they did with guitarists and singers Cedric Burnside, Cameron Kimbrough, and Pat Thomas and fife player and singer Shardé Thomas, yielding the brilliant album “Muddy Gurdy,”
Released internationally through the VizzTone Label Group, Muddy Gurdy received critical acclaim and won the coveted Academie Charles Cros “Cri De Coeur” award.
