Willos’ – Irish folk music

Betty Vezzani: voice – from Correggio (ITA)

Giulio Putti: percussion – from Siena (ITA)

Willos’ will present a repertoire of Irish folk dance and airs with a Mediterranean soul. The band has performed nearly 500 concerts in Ireland, Italy, France, Germany & Switzerland and has made 3 albums. After a six year break they are back performing live with a brand new repertoire full of Irish reels, jigs, polkas, songs and ballads both traditional and original, which mixes different sounds to produce a hypothetical journey from the Mediterranean to the North Sea. Their music will be on the soundtrack to the film ‘Betrayal’ by Scottish Actor/Director Frank Gilhooley (from the series ‘Outlander’).
Together with Willos’ we have the honour of welcoming to the amphitheatre stage Massimo Giuntini, a master of the Irish Bagpipe and the voice of Betty Vezzani, both musicians with the Modena City Ramblers.
