Then, everyone jumped in their cars & a convoy rushed off to Kerfourn, where we sang the same songs all over again.

Event: Charity Lunch; all proceeds to the Nepal Earthquake Fund.

I believe that more than one thousand euros were raised. Well done to everyone who worked so hard in the kitchen, and glad we were able to help out in some small way.



Chantimor à Moréac, Bieuzy les Eaux et Kerfourn

Flushed  with success for being given the public vote for « Best Entertainment » at the Trophée Hayet in Vannes last month, Chantimor is currently organising a summer programme. First up…. La Fête de la Musique in Moréac Saturday 27th JUNE at about 9pm. We’ll be on the big parking place & hope we won’t be drowned out by the Breton band & dancers who will be our neighbours. Fortunately, we are going wired for sound (rather than our usual « unplugged ») and we have Luke on electric guitar. So it’s Sea Shanties, Jim, but not as you know it! Bring some beer (or rum) and get ready to clap along!

Next:  Sunday 12th JULY for a more traditional Sea Shanty sound, we’ll be accompanied by Dave on accordian & Anwyl on whistles. Find us in the market at Bieuzy des Eaux at about 10.30, swiftly followed by a performance in the « Salle » at lunchtime at Kerfourn. This is a charity lunch to raise money for the Nepal Earthquake appeal. See details below if you wish to participate.
