Thanks for excerpting the story for us, JNW. I don’t understand the language. Our ‘Set Americain’ group plays most of the tunes included in this mission, and I know many of the musicians and dancers who participated in the event; but ‘le conte’ had eluded me.

Looks like a lot of sessions I’ve been to, as soon as the music starts somebody takes off shouting and bawling.

I’ve gone home early from a few sessions like that Backer…

Re: CommandoTrad #9

Reminds me of the street outside the Favourite Pub at closing time on a Sunday morning in the late sixties. Before someone called the police of course!!!!!

Re: CommandoTrad #9

Tres bien!
Merci beaucoup!

Re: CommandoTrad #9

What fun.

It looks like a grand time was had by all, musicians, storyteller, and audience.

Mes compliments.
(hope I got that right)
