Flute player Lucie Périer is renowned for her use of the silver boehm flute on Irish traditional music, jazz and world music. Born to a very musical family steeped in Irish traditional music, Lucie defines Irish music as her « native » language, as she was taught her first tunes by her father, fiddle and box player Christian Périer, and her first songs by her mother Jacqueline Fontanel.
Now based in Le Jura, France, she released Apples In Winter in December 2019 with fiddle player Orwin Hébert and she is busy touring with the husband-and-wife duet « Lucie Périer & Her Big (hus)Band, and with bands Flinn (Irish music) and Kongo Yélé (Manding Music).
Lucie has also been making the best of social media during lockdown with her « Tunes In The Kitchen » series available on her facebook page, youtube channel and Instagram.
Regarded as a skilled, sensitive and versatile musician, she is also a demanded teacher and founded in 2018 her own music school, L'École Anémochore.
