And here is the band!
(it might help to enlarge these photos to get a clearer look)
Lester is fourth on the left,
and I am second from the right.
We are playing in an old school canteen,
in Borderes sur l'Echez.
We are 'posing' for this photo,
who is trying to get his violin to stay on his music stand.
I am the one with the accordion,
next to the harp.
And here we are in full swing,
watching Lester as he takes up his solo,
with me keeping an eye on him.
We normally sit together,
but were separated on this occasion.
This was at the start of the evening before most people arrived,
and it was a 'bal' event,
which is sort of like English country dancing but French style.
And here we are at Le Progres, Nogoro.
As you can see,
everyone is playing except me,
which is because they are playing a very fast Irish jig,
and I have run out of puff.
Lester is on the left of me, playing his mandolin.
Lester deep in concentration as Jacques and Herve rock it away.
.....and now relaxed after having had a session with his fiddle.
.... and me and my accordion!
Hope you enjoyed sharing our musical 'moments'
Bye for now,
..... a few seconds of 'Star of County Down'
( we are novices at videoing ourselves at the moment!)
