MY SERIOUS MUSIC playing days a long over, but I still enjoy getting together for some tunes from time to time. For the past couple of years I've been playing on-and-off with a group from a neighboring village that plays a lot of traditional provençal music. This fall we decided to get a bit more organized (even got a new name -- Cante'Music), arranged for a few concerts around the area -- mostly in village squares, churches, and at local festivals. This Saturday evening we are playing a Christmas concert at the old Chateau in Le Bar-sur-Loup that will feature a lot of different kinds of music: traditional local, Christmas, Irish tunes, even a couple Beatles numbers for fun. The group features people from the U.S., England, France and Italy and songs are sung in English, French, Italian, and provençal. Perfect. (Hint: the two Americans and the Englishman all teach at the CIV).
If you're around and want to enjoy a bit of music, join us at 20h30 at the Chateau de Bar-Sur-Loup -- right next to the church in the old village.
