The Clarinet has been present in Breton music since the 1840s. The clarinet player is called "sonerien treujenn-gaol" in Breton."Sonerien" is the word for a Breton music player and "treujenn-gaol" refers to the "stem of the cabbage" - when feeding animals, as you cut leaves, a hole appears in the stem.

Most of the time it is played in duets, just like the trad form of singing "Kan ha diskan", using "Tuilage" technique.
