Michel Griffin & Anne-Em'

Michel and Anne-Em’ first met when they both sang in the a capella jazz group ‘Les Bumets’. From this happy encounter between baritone and soprano, a duo was born, who set about assembling a carefully chosen repertoire, piece by piece.

Over time, in the course of regular sessions together, they put together material which mixes English and French, jazz and blues, melancholy and humour, but all with a common thread of romance.

The duo include their own compositions in their concerts, together with songs by Claude Nougaro, Pauline Croze, Michel Jonasz, Sting, not to mention John Lennon, Henri Salvador and Anne Sylvestre. Titles like Ils s'adorent, Quizas Quizas Quizas or Over the Moon vary the mood, while always giving us melodies, harmonies and lyrics to savour ...

Regular guests at the Cahors Folk Club in Labastide Marnhac, they have already given concerts at the Carré d'Art in Cahors, and more than once for the Petit Creux in Luzech. They were the guests of the association A.V.E.C. of Pradines for a concert in October and appeared regularly at the Pataterie restaurant in Cahors.

Michel and Anne-Em’ are natural performers. Every concert is imbued with their warmth and humour: the joy they take in playing and singing is palpable ...

NEW !

If you wish (at the request of the organiser), Michel and Anne-Em’ will present you their repertoire, woven together by the romantic history of Roselyne et Paul.

Roselyne and Paul meet, and then part ... Separated by an ocean, they dream about each other, and are eventually reunited, more in love than ever. We follow their roller-coaster journey through the emotional turmoil, with songs that match each change in their mood.

This light-hearted romance links the songs in a way that showcases the warmth and humour that Michel and Anne-Em bring to each perfomance.
