The Doc joins Mary-Lou on stage

Friday 18 of july at 9, at the camping des 2 Fontaines in Névez, our friend Rob (The Doc) Dokter joined us on stage a few amotionnal songs.
The_Doc_et_Mary_Lou_6The Doc, dutch singer and guitar player, is not only a friend, but also a very good musician.
He's a great songwriter with a warm voice, and he sometimes has been compared to Neil Young.

He often playes on the french stages, and played many times with Mary-Lou, especially for the festival "Non à la Dépression" for the tenth birthday of the band. (c.f. site Mary-Lou).

to go, after a little rest to sleep, to our buddies of the Jame's Café in Toussieu near Lyon.

For 6 years, we have been playing in this small show room where the ambiance has allways been warm and friendly. Unfortunately, like many others, this temple of live music will close, stangled by administrative troubles, and the "nothing to care" of the politics.
Si it was a friendly but also nostalgic night. Thanks to Gonzague and all his staff who will allways keep a place in our heart.

But the show must go on, and saturday, after a short night, we were "on the road again" bound to St Maximin la Sainte Baume, in the Var, invited by the town.

Mary_Lou_St_Maximin_Sc_neA very fine place, a pretty little town of the south-east of France, and a very pleasant concert with a very big audience. Thanks to everyone.

MARY-LOU 12 YEARS OF COUNTRY MUSIC IN FRANCE

In a few days it's gonna be the 12th anniversary of Mary-Lou. 12 years of musical adventures on the road. 12 years of music with musicians from France, europe and USA. 12 years, 5 cds, 1 dvd and 1100 concerts. In the spring of 96, we were preaching in the desert : "book a country folk band ... there's an audience in France for that music ..." and pretty often, the organizers were discovering that there were in France many country musicians.
As we say here : " some water has flown under the bridges ", Country European line dance fashion has come, and we are still faithfull to our french country folk sound that makes the one and only Mary-Lou.
Here are the posters of those 12 years :
