Sonerien Du - Gwerz Penmarc'h (Arfolk, 1978)...

Folk music from Brittany, France...
They take their name "Black Sonneurs" (Black Bell-ringers), from an unfortunate episode in the rivalries and misunderstandings between Bigoudens and Glaziks, when two pipers whose peculiarity was always to dress in black and came to Pont-l'Abbé to celebrate a marriage and were found drunk in a recumbent position in a ditch after the wedding, falsely accused and hanged for stealing money, in a notice to the city.
