Hailing from Toulouse, France, Doolin' are an eclectic Celtic ensemble whose mastery of traditional Irish music has earned them an international following.
Named after an Irish fishing village and largely comprising two different families, Doolin' mix a variety of traditional and contemporary Celtic styles with elements of French folk and rock music. The band consists of brothers Nicolas Besse (guitar) and Wilfried Besse (vocals, accordion) and their cousin Sébastien Saunié (bass), along with Guilhem Cavaillé (fiddle) and brothers Jacob (whistles) and Josselin Fournel (bodhran). Since forming in 2005, they have released three studio albums as well as the 2013 concert album Live in Lorient. After signing with Compass Records, they traveled to the U.S. to record their 2016 self-titled fourth LP in Nashville, incorporating American roots music into their already unique sound. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
