Hi All - new to this forum and to Brittany. I'm a singer songwriter and record producer, just buying a place near Merleac, I'll be building a great budget studio in the barn. I'm keen to meet musicians and singers in the area, both for playing and to advertise my recording studio! I have a long track record in both performing and studios - I currently own a studio in Brighton.I'm keen to play live! Specialise in acoustic music but have done the rounds in all types of bands. So any pointers for places to hangout for musical types please would be great. Pleased to meet you!Simon
I have just booked some tickets to see the Churchfitters live in Evran (Dinan). If you like Folk music, you will love them. They write their own songs and even make their own instruments! They are playing in Evran on Sat 19th Nov at 8.30pm. Tickets 8 euros if prebooked, 10 euros on the day. There are 4 other bands playing so it will be a great night out!
I have seen some of my clients today who have just moved over here and, being a bit green, they had called someone out to lay on their satellite cable, the cable had been cut off by the previous owners so, in theory, they just needed new fittings on it or at the most, a new cable or 2 laid on to other parts of the house too, baring in mind, they are having a new subscription set up that they will have to pay for, a box supplied by "sky" separately, they were charged today by the friendly satallite TV man, 500€ for his day's labour a few metres of cable, and a new dish, even though the other one had only been fitted 6 months ago and looks exactly the same but he said his was betrer!!!! Nice work if you can get it eh! Why do some people prey on new comers?
We have a great band coming over from UK next week to play at a party and they were wondering if we could find them an extra gig for next Thursday evening (27th Oct) They are great fun and it's always a superb atmosphere when they play. See www.boatband.co.uk. They have played at Cambridge folk festival and at Glastonbury Cajun and Zydeco festival. phone me on 0614540429 or contact band direct.

I have just purchased a HDR-1100S Humax Freesat with Freetime Recorder HDR-1100S to replace our Sky box at our home in the UK - I resent paying a monthly subscription fee to Sky when for a one off purchase from Argos of £190 I have found a very attractive alternative. It really is superb and I wish I'd made the decision a long time ago. As I still have a Sky dish and box at our home in Brittany I am keen to ask if anybody knows if this Freesat box would work for me in France as I am keen to buy one to take over there it will. Any advice would be most appreciated thanks.

I am based in the Combourg area of northern Brittany and would like to join or form a band for live concerts. I mainly play bass, write songs, sing a bit and am happy playing blues , rock or folk music. All things considered and flexible with time. Have good gear and experience.
