Alain Servant & John Linnane


Two smoky vocalists (French, English, Spanish) draw the audience into their bittersweet musings and cynical, lyrical idylls, where hope and despair waltz hand in hand. The duo blends influences of punk, folk and storytelling into a dreamlike atmosphere that speaks with passion and lightness of our strange journey on this earth.

Et les deux voix embrumées (Français, Anglais, Espagnol) emportent l’audience dans leurs rêveries douces-amères et dans leur idylle lyrique et humoristique  où l’espérance et le désespoir dansent main dans la main. Le Duo mêle les influences allant du punk au folk et à l’art du conte dans une ambiance onirique qui parle avec passion et légèreté de notre étrange voyage sur cette Terre.
