Live Acts I saw in Brittany

Seeing other people write about holidays reminds me I meant to blog about the live acts I saw in France. There were three:

Mandé Blues Band: 'Le Mande Blues Band est un groupe breton emmené par Cheick Tidiane Dia, joueur de kora et chanteur. Cette musique est résolument de tradition africaine, mais également métissée de musiques blues, orientales, latines ou celtiques..' The Kora looks like this.

The Honeymen: "The Sun records era of Howlin’ Wolf , James Cotton and Doctor Ross ... Ponctuated by frenetic harmonica riffs, driven by solid “trash” guitar picking and beating with the Swamp Box (a foot stomping box conceived by Jimmy) the music of the Honeymen will lead you into a joyous and hypnotic Blues that’s capable of transforming any luxurious lounge into a torrid Juke Joint!" LOL

Agathe Sahraoui: Billy Holiday etc. ' Elle poursuit en parallèle ses récitals solo dans les clubs de jazz. Aujourd'hui, nourrie par la rue d'autrefois, par ses rencontres prestigieuses et ses voyages, Agathe Sahraoui chante Billie Holiday. Elle chante l'amour et ses douleurs...L'émotion est intacte et son art maitrisé. "

  • Phew what a scorcher

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
