Blowout Online Concert

The online Blowout seems a long, long time ago now but there are some happy memories of great music, chat and seeing old friends (a bit like the real one but a bit more socially distanced!). If you were unable to join us on the day, then you will have missed out on two great concerts in the evening. The first was from Arnaud Bibonne who entertained us with music from his native Gascony, with some amazing playing on a number of bohas. This was followed by the duo, Vincent Belin and Aline Pilon. They are steeped in the music traditions of the Nivernais-Morvan region of France and as well as performing for concerts and dances, they teach at the conservatoire de musique du Grand Autunois Morvan.

The good news is that you can catch up on the concert on YouTube. So, in proper Blowout fashion, pour yourself a glass of beer, make yourself comfortable and watch online

But, if playing rather than listening is your thing, then Vincent and Aline have kindly provided the notation for one of the pieces they played in that concert.
