"Kornog combined the talents of flautist Jean Michel Veillon, Soig Siberil on guitar, fiddler Christian Lemaitre and Jamie McMenemy on vocals bouzouki and mandolin four individual stylists in one powerful group. Ahead of their time they took the traditional Breton folk dances used in Fest Noz's including Andros,Dans Plins, Gavottes and arranged them for fiddle/flute/bouzouki/guitar and placed them in a listening context. Kornog created a new type of Breton music.They concentrated on the melodic nature of the tunes where the ears benefited as well as the feet. "Premeiere" caught Kornog on their first US tour in 1983 and captures the life, energy, taste, subtlety and inventiveness of their live show. This is the sound that opened American ears to the delights of Breton folk music."Premiere" has an important Breton folk band caught live in America."
