Anne Niepold
Musette Is Not Dead
A RootsWorld audio review by Cliff Furnald

Belgian accordionist, arranger and composer Anne Niepold has been flirting with the café musette music of Europe for a few years now. On her newest release,. Musette is Not Dead, she pays tribute to some of the great names like Jo Privat and delves into others who made a name in the clubs of Paris. With her small orchestra of musicians playing flute, oboe, horns, bass and drums, she can channel the old romance of the music with historical reverence, or reinvent the cliches with brash cheekiness.
