Don't know the name, but you've done a great job with it!  It's also on "Another Setting," by the House Band ... that band was sort of my gateway drug to Breton music.  Chris Parkinson's in it, and the amazing John Skelton on flute and bombarde.

Thanks! I have only recently found the "Accordeon Diatonique" album. Not sure when it was recorded but looking at the cover photo it must be 70s or early 80s. I am now working my way through, learning the tunes!

If it's the one I'm thinking of, thats a great set.  I don't remember this tune being on that set, though.  There's a bit with a saxophonist that my purist friends tried to steer me away from, but I love it.  Really opened my eyes to what's possible with this music.  Another great set is in the "Idiots guide ..." series.  It's called "Fest Noz pour Nuls."  I wasn't very hopeful when given it, but it's genuinely fine.

This one is just A.P and his accordeon! I have struggled with Breton stuff so far but this album is certainly helping because it is just unadorned accordeon.
As I managed to avoid a New Year's hangover I spent yesterday learning another set from the LP :||:
Still work in progress and a bit too fast I think.

Great job, Tufty!

Here's my rendition of Pere Rouxel (on my Pastourelle III):
