AllMusic Review by

Back to Breizh from Breton Harp master Alan Stivell utilizes a wide variety of influences on this 12-song disc. Added to his Celtic melodies are bagpipes, hints of rock guitar, DJs' turntables, and folk-rock in the tradition of Fairport Convention. Acoustic guitarist Jean Charles Guigen formerly of the group Ar Re Yaoank along with 15 musicians who play traditional and modern instruments compliments Stivell. This is an interestingly eclectic release on Dreyfus records.
