Thanks to the Tourism Office. We heared many bands in a friendly atmosphere. Thanks to the many many people of the Place Albert Parent.
Now we're back home. The summer tour is almost over. It has been very hard this year. Some pics from our last gigs in the south. Nîmes first, "the town with an accent" had invited us for the second time this summer, thursday 08/19. "Buffalo" played some harmonica with us and he kindly sent some pictures. Thanks to him. If you made pics or videos at a concert, please send them to us.
The day after,, gig in Lacanau (private campground), then Charente, near Nanteuil en Vallée, A very cute place where we were playing for a private party. We were glad to meet again many friends, and, despite of the very high temperature (a Florida feeling) we, and the hundred of people there, will keep wonderful memories of that night : music, love and friendship under the stars. The real thing ! Thanks to Francine and Claude ! Happy Trails !
We played last saturday in St Ségal (Finistère). This small town near Châteaulin had invited The Hoboes to play their "Country Tales and Train Songs" in the St Sébastien Chapel. A hundred of people were there. You can visit that extraordinary building for free untill the end of August.
A lovely audience and a great night.
Thanks to the town and to Virginie Foutel who is in charge of the booking.
We recorded that Patsy Montana song with The Volleyball Jones Pickers in Jacksonville (Arkansas) on their way back from California to Florida. The Volleyball Jones pickers also called the Bluegrass Bombers are a bluegrass band of 4 very kind guys who are wonderful musicians. David Durham (upright bass), John Lee (vocals, dobro, banjo, guitar, banjobro), David Evans (vocals, fiddle, mandolin) & Steve Evans (guitar, vocals).
Stephane Dhondt, our piano player stayed in france because of the volcano. We had a wonderful time in Arkansas playing music and shooting that clip. Thank you the pickers.
The France Bluegrass 2 is available since august 2009.
30 songss, and an almost exhaustive picture of the french bluegrass and folk music.
This double cd is available on the Mary-Lou website (15 Euros + 3 € shipping)
