Fete de la Musique 2016...

This weekend is the 'Fete de la Musique', the annual music festival here in France where musicians are asked to provide free (plus paid for concerts) live music in a variety of venues. The tradition inaugurated by the then French Minister of Culture in Paris in 1982 continues to reinvent itself with free concerts with everything from hunting horns to hip hop.

Check your local tourist office for what is on near you...or check out some of what's on in your department here

Locally at Le Grand Pressigny we have the annual 'Feu de la St Jean' complete with bonfire...


or you can head over to Le Petit Pressigny where some friends are providing some of the music under the name 'Le Troi Daves'

There are also bands playing at 'Bar La Saulaie' (The Riders) and 'Cafe de la Paix'  (Les Reactors) in Descartes on Friday evening plus they have a programme of music over the weekend.
