This weekend will see the 7th edition of Folk en Scènes, a celebration of folk music at venues in Trignac, Montoir-de-Bretagne and Besné, with concerts given by artists from all around the world within the folk genre. On Sunday night, the Espace A Capella in Besné will play host to Sparky in the Clouds, a trio comprised of English sisters Miranda (left) and Bryony (right) Perkins, along with French guitarist Mathias Castagné (centre). Their appearance at Folk en Scènes comes just months after the release of their exciting new album, Kings and Queens, and slap-bang in the middle of a big French tour.
The Euradio Show’s Jon Berry spoke to Miranda about the band’s unique and hard-to-pin-down sound ahead of their concert in Besné, and finds out the story behind the formation and development of this folk triumvirate.
