From Paris to Martletwy In the 12 years that it has been hosting world music concerts, Burnett's Hill Chapel has attracted top class musicians from as far afield as Mexico, Serbia, Iceland and Canada – but never France.

This is all set to change this week when the quirky little music venue near Martletwy hosts the four-piece Cory Seznec Band from Paris.

An acclaimed slide guitarist, banjo player, singer and songwriter, Cory has been hailed as 'the heir to Ry Cooder'. Wednesday's concert marks a welcome return to the chapel for the French/ American musician who previously performed two sell-out concerts there with the much-missed Groanbox Boys.

“I'm really looking forward to returning to Burnett's Hill on my UK tour,” said Cory. “It's one of my favourite venues.

“I'll be showcasing songs from my new album Backroad Carnival with the help of three stellar French musicians - David Chalumeau on harmonica, Daniel Mizrahi on lead guitar/mandolin, and Renaud Ollivier on percussion.”

Burnett's Hill is the only Welsh date on the UK tour for Cory and his band, who are playing at the prestigious Green Note Cafe in London the night before. The concert at Martletwy is on Wednesday March 7 and tickets are £10.00 each, available from Main Street Music in Pembroke or by calling 01646 651725.
