Some of the most exciting sounds to emanate from the northern France region of Brittany, between 1982 and 1993, were produced by Pennou Skoulm. An off-shoot of traditional Breton band Kornog, Pennou Skoulm took a more adventurous approach to the Breton traditions. Formed in 1982, Pennou Skoulm represented the vision of Kornog's wooden flute player Jean-Michel Veillon. By 1987, the group included Kornog's guitarist Soig Siberil and fiddler Christian Lemaitre as well as the jazz-influenced Molard brothers -- -Patrick and Jacky.
