Saturday 1st of March was the 12th anniversary of the 1st concert of Mary-Lou. We played with the blues band Dizzy Town Blues in Pleyben (29) for the Night of the Music school. More than a hundred friendly people were there. Thanks to the staff who put on everything.
Musical meeting with this young band from Douarnenez. They have a very good blues brand new cd. The guitar player Brendan de Roeck will be the next guest of our Private Concert the 5th of April.
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 :
