+ Support 'Part of The Union'

Lo Polidoro is a French singer-songwriter living in London, whose extraordinary songs evoke the character and atmosphere of half remembered European movies. With a voice at turns charming, haunting and comic, an engaging guitar style, and a band that blends strands of folk, musette, tango, rumba and classic French pop. Born in France she fell in love with the music of the 1960's folk movement - French, British and American - and began performing some of this material with her sister Aurélie around the cafés and bars of Burgundy. In 1998 Lo moved to London, met a network of musicians, discovered the octave mandola, learnt fingerstyle guitar, began writing songs, and often appears with many of South London's roots music luminaries, as well as at the Glastonbury Festival. The music of Lo Polidoro is not quite like anything you have ever heard...
