It's Friday and nearly the weekend, so lets kick back a little with some music. I have an eclectic taste in music, it really depends on my mood and what I am doing. Today I started with David Bowie's new release, then some vintage Bowie, followed by Marianne Faithful, Polly Harvey and a dash of Kings of Leon.
But....I wanted to share La P'tite Moisson with you, a great local band from Le Morvan, where I live in France. The band plays a mix of traditional Morvan folk music, Bluegrass and Folk. The accordian is an important part of the local sound especially for dancing to lively country dances like la bourree.
La P'tite Moisson play at banquets, village fetes, festivals, bars, clubs..anywhere and everywhere! They are an essential part of the summer for me.
See La P'tite Moisson play "Waltz of Champ Gaillard" on the You Tube link below. It is filmed in Le Morvan and you get a glimpse of the Morvan countryside.. the petit chemins (little roads and paths)... the mysterious hills.... etangs (lakes) and forests full of wildlife. http://youtu.be/jA4BJ_9R1lA
Does music affect your mood? Did you listen to La P'tite Moisson? Did it conjour up a French summer for you?
