        When over the wind blowing through the fields , these  tunes have been cradling us , when none of each event in our past   could be remembered without hearing them , our highest pleasure is to transmit them all around us before they desapear throughout  the night of  past years  .

        Our bagad ( breton appellation for pipe-band ),  was founded in 1973 .

        A group of senior pipers , ( biniou=bagpipe ; bombarde=strong flute ; drums ) decided to constitute a bagad , playing in the way we used to do fifty years ago . ("Ar Re Goz "can be translated by " Old boys" ) .The average number goes from fifteen to twenty players .They use to train in the town of Quimper , in south Brittany , capital of our Cornwall. But when they have to face an important festival   , some friends use to come from everywhere in Brittany , Bro Leon,Bro  Tregor, Bro   Roazon, Bro Gwened , with their tunes . The main meeting , of course , takes place at the end of july every year , at the "Festival de Cornouaille ".

        Since they began blowing their instruments , the band has been   very happy   to take part , in France or abroad , to many festivals where they were glad   to present their autenthicity , their originality , and their good temper .

        If it happens that you meet this merry bagad  in a procession or on a stage ,   you may be surprised by the differences : no uniform ; every one is wearing the traditionnal dress , presenting so a kind of map of our old Brittany , people of   inland ( so many countries , with so many dresses! ) or of  the seashore !!

        May this site make you know our originality !!
