Symmetry - Electrified folk songs

One plays it left plays it right, one writes...the other arranges, one sings...the other harmonises, one builds foundations with his guitar...the other decorates, embroiders, flies ! Symmetry play acoustic compositions, mixing folk, rock and blues, mixing sweetness and energy, mixing love, dark and protest songs. Phil accompanies his voice with his folk guitar, and Jean-Yves electrifies the songs with his fx pedals. He also sings the backing vocals. These two musicians benefit from a large musical experience acquired over 30 years. The band comes complete with it’s own sound system and lights, suitable for small spaces, but can play acoustically if required. The duo is based in Cahors (Lot, 46), France, but will travel to any venue in France and even bordering countries. The band can play on all kinds of stages, from big venues to private concerts in apartments. Ideally suited to a small room with a few dozen places, as this almost acoustic set deserves a certain closeness with a public willing to discover the compositions and the atmosphere created by the sound.
