So after Dublin we arrived in Lorient, Brittany. We did over 15 shows. 4 of them were unexpected and were shows we got offered from promoters. People where insanely nice and loved every note we did during our shows. Some bodysurfed, some danced on stage with us and a lot, I mean a lot of them, were dropping their drinks on stage and in the venue.

We performed in a tent sponsored by Guinness at the Lorient Festival (FIL). The promoter liked our show so much that he took one afternoon off and presented us to other promoters of the festival for more potential shows for next year. Also, during our stay, some newspaper and radio journalists interviewed us. For me, having so much attention is unusual. We like to talk about ourselves but in the overall what we are best at is to be on stage!

Today we are leaving Brittany (I am writing right now at Nantes’s airport), and heading for one last show in New Brunswick and then we come back home. There is a feeling of happiness, accomplishment but also nostalgia. I do believe that this crazy experience is finally opening doors for us and that this is just the beginning of a great adventure.
