Bleu Charrette are a folk-roots duo from the Lot Department in South-West France whose musical style is an original mixture of folk, blues and old-time country. Shimmering harmonies and sumptuous harmonicas meld into a soundscape of flowing acoustic guitar with a bedrock of cajon-based percussion.

Bleu Charrette: Signs and Wonders
 
Gindou: a little village of barely 300 inhabitants, a few kilometres to the North-West of Cahors. That's where one of the finest folk albums of the moment was recorded.  It's by the duo, Bleu Charrette, consisting of British singer, guitarist, harmonica and banjo player, James Armstrong and French singer of Dutch origin, Sacha Touw, who also sings and plays the harmonica and provides percussion as well.
James arrived in the Lot in 2013, with a wealth of experience as a musician and folk singer behind him and Sacha, also very experienced musically, in 2005.  They met in 2015 and Signs and Wonders is their first 'baby': eight songs written by James with the exception of 'Baby Blues', the only French song, where the lyrics were provided by Sacha.
Songs with their roots firmly in British Folk, voices which blend marvellously together, over the top of these musical components floats the violin of Mr. Moon, the Album producer.  What’s not to like! 
(Jean-Jacques Corrio)
