Last Saturday our Comité des Fêtes organised ‘La Fête de la Musique’, an annual event in the whole of France. Officially it’s on the 21st of June, but since this is a weekday, it has been decided to have it on a Saturday. It was a pity that it took some time before the public came, due to the football no doubt, because everybody received a leaflet in their letterbox.
Anyway of course we were there again….You know there’s no party without ‘The Porters’ from ‘Au Bellefleur’.
We have been lucky with the choice of the bands. Burning Acoustic, with lead singer Walter Michel, played and sang songs from Peter Gabriël, Depeche Mode, Fleetwood Mac, etc.
We had a lovely chat with Walter from Burning Acoustic, here in this photo as well.
Mathieu Gautier, went solo with keyboard and later his group Anagramm joined. Despite his cold Mathieu (we had a little chat with him) performed ‘Somebody that I used to know’ by Gotye (Belgian guy) very well. Furthermore we have heard some songs by the Police, Genesis, etc.
Burning Acoustic in concert live unplugged will perform during the Blues Passion Festival in Cognac. (Free admission)
