Among the recent musical experiences (orchestral ensemble "Ars'Ys", or progressive rock "Children in Paradise"), he is now working with jazz musicians Gildas & JB Boclé, in the exciting Keltic Tales Quartet. A new album, freshly recorded in NYC and Brittany, will be released in 2014. He also plays duets with his brother Ronan (accordion), New Yorker Louisa Bennion (concertina), Bretons Ronan Pellen (cittern) or Ludo Mesnil (guitars). https://soundcloud.com/loicblejeantadsargent http://www.tadsargent.com/ http://crossharbourmusic.com/ https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lo%C3%AFc-Bl%C3%A9jean-Music/149643545080136 http://youtu.be/uwl0-oMPyAk
