Just a quick reminder that, weather permitting, Chantimor will be singing songs for Her Maj. at La Chèze (near Loudéac) tomorrow, Sunday 12th June. She won't know anything about it of course, but we will be singing songs from every decade of her life, starting in 1926.So, if you are feeling patriotic/homesick or simply want to have a bit of a pub type sing along & a laugh - come & find us at the lake. Wear a rose. Grab a beer. Come in good voice. About 3.15 ish.
Anyone on here up for starting the best pub rock band that Brittany has ever seen? I'm a very experienced guitarist and I want to get together with a great drummer, bass player, and another guitarist for lead duties. We'll need an awesome frontman as well. Old school AC/DC, ZZ Top etc done properly. If I can find the right people we should be able to write a set list, bang out a dozen rehearsals and be ready to go for the summer season. You've got to have the gear, transport and be tighter than a ducks bum (rhythm wise). Send me a message if you're up for it.

Having moved over to northern Brittany recently from the UK, I am hoping to get involved in new music projects preferably a band in Brittany or Normandy. Based in the Dinan area. I have had plenty of experience performing live as a bass guitar player, occasional vocalist and songwriter. Am open to ideas and playing most styles of music but prefer blues, rock and folk music.
I used to find it really useful to find this week's English language films on the AngloInfo website. This now seems to have disappeared, and the cinema listings such as they are do not link to the cinema's website so you have no way of seeing their programme. I feel this revamp has been all about style (admittedly it looks much better) over content and functionality.
