Ar Korrigan -folk celtique
An Triskell
Roland Becker -Fallaen (more jazzy)
Diaouled -ar menez
Gwekltaz -bonedou ruz
Gwenfol Orchestra
Kouerien san Yann
Sonerein Du
Skaliero
Kornog

These are French (one is Dutch), but the "sound" is what your after:
La Bamboche
La Chiffonie
Maluzerene
Hoperien

Wallace has trade lps of Canadian  70s folk stuff not that far from this sound:
Barde -2 titles
Reve du Diable
Tamarack

Also got Canadian origional presses of Alan Stivell lps.

Make that "Gweltaz".

Yes, Dague "Pop Occitana" is one of the very best. Accordion,violins,mandolin,etc..
(not to confuse with Zoo's singer lp Dayde.)

Even if i live in Bretagne, i'm not a real specialist of Breton folk-rock  Undecided

The albums i have on CD :

Alan Stivell (the more famous Breton artist) :
-Telenn geltiek (1961) - instrumental harp
-Reflets (1970) - folk-rock
-Olympia concert (1972) - live Paris
-Chemins de terre (1973) - folk-rock
-E dulenn (1975) - live Dublin

Dan Ar Bras (ex Alan Stivell & Fairport Convention) :
-Douar Nevez (1977)

Tri Yann (pop side of Breton folk-rock)
-An naoned (1972)
-Suite gallaise (1974)
-Inventaire (1970-1993)

Seven Reizh (the best actual prog band)
-Strinkadenn Ys (2001)
-Samsara (2006)

Now adding to Wallace's list :

-Ar Skloferien
-Asgard (not the UK one)
-Bleizi Ruz
-Folkdove
-La Godinette
-La Mirlitantouille
-Orion
-Satanazet
-Skolvan
almost all from the 70's

+ a LOT of actual folk bands  Huh?

And here is a list of similar French folk :
Mailcorne, Mélusine, La Bamboche, La Chanterelle, Le Claque Galoche, Le Grand Rouge, La Kinkerne, René Werneer, Lyonesse, La Confrérie des fous, La Chifonnie, Bill Deraime, Alain Giroux, Eric Kristy, Mick Larie et Jean-Marie Redon, Jean-Jacques Milteau, Youra Marcus, Gérard Dole, Grop Rosamonda, Lambrusc, Miqueu Montanaro, Mont Loia, Rosina de Peira, Perlinpinpin Folc, Riga-Raga, Los del Sauveterre, Roger Siffer, Géranium, Les Luschtiga Malker, La Manivelle, Chalibaude, La Chavannée d’Montbel, Ellébore, Maluzerne, Tarentule, Café-Charbon ...

I think Dague is from the South of France.

If you want something from my Breton CD list (top of the page), tell me  Smiley

La Mirlitantouille : look at this page http://www.breizh.de/cds/mirlitantouille.htm

Orion : i only know they made 1 album in 1979.

Satanazet : 1968-1975, first band of the Molard brothers. Very well known musicians in Bretagne, they played with Alan Stivell, Diaouled ar Menez, Skolvan, Gwendal... and many more.

Skolvan : traditional band born in 1984, especially for Breton dance.

Like i said before, i'm not a specialist of Breton folk  Wink

Ar Re Yaouank is (maybe) my favourite band from there. I have the Best Of + the Live one (for those who are interested) The bassist comes from a metal band and his work on bass is really great.

EV is an band that really rocks with bombarde and accordion. I had poste it on "La Nuit Detend", let me find it back or upload it (if interested)

If there is still interest in this topic I have many many french folk albums I can share.

Yes Dague is from the south of France a region known as Occitan...with a great folk tradition.

I recently posted a few "Breton" albums including a "Breton made in Germany" with An Dro

Let me know as I can also post the Dague album
