5/6/14 – Yann Tiersen – Infinity – Live On Ouessant Island, Brittany – 2014

Yann Tiersen

Yann Tiersen and band Live on the mysterious Island of Ouessant off the coast of Brittany. This concert on a chilly March has Tiersen playing the new album, Infinity for an audience of wrapped up locals from a population of under 900 people. It’s a timeless landscape where battles have been fought and ships have been lost on the treacherous rocks. Oil tankers have run aground here and many lives have been lost – the Créac’h lighthouse built in 1863 (apparently the most powerful lighthouse in the world) attempts to protect the passing ships from a watery grave. Tiersen picks this formidable location to showcase his absorbing music.
