Lucie Azconaga and Consuelo Breschi are a fiddle and vocal duet. They arrange traditional tunes and songs, by weaving around the melodies with harmonies, drones, and countermelody, to create new avenues for the tunes to go down. Lucie, from France, and Consuelo, from Italy met in 2015, after moving to Dublin to pursue their love for Irish traditional music, and immediately started a fruitful collaboration. They travelled to Ireland along different musical paths, Lucie from jazz, classical music, and French folk, Consuelo from Irish trad, folk, and world music. The influences in their playing and singing are many: from baroque and medieval music to the inspiring traditional Irish music scenes of Dublin and Belfast, and from the singing of Sandy Denny, Ann Briggs, June Tabor, Maddy Prior, Dolores Keane, John Faulkner, and Eithne Ní Uallacháin, to name but a few. Lucie and Consuelo are also involved in other projects, such as The Morning Tree, the Lisa O’ Neill band, and The Nomadic Piano Ensemble. They have both performed extensively in Italy, France, Ireland, and the UK.
