DINGLE & THE BLASKETS ISLANDS

AUGUST 27, 2017

WHERE
Ireland 2017

ABOUT

Dingle Bay, Blaskets Islands… True rish spirit dancing on the cliffs and old sailor stories are still haunting those places… In the middle of the XXth century, the last habitants of the Great Blasket were forced to leave. We hiked a bit into the ruins of the town, keepin in mind the words of Tomás Ó Criomhthain in his « Islandman » …

CONNEMARA & THE BURREN . IRELAND . Aug 2017

Ireland, that country of spirits made of stones and beers as dark as the land
A few pics taken on those roads here in Connemara & the Burren, west part of the island.
Heading Roundstone and Clifden, we walked along the lakes and the ocean, before driving to the Burren and the beautiful town of Kilfenora. In the middle of nowhere….
I hope you will find in these pics what I found there !

ABOUT

Huge streets, south american spirit.. La grandiosa Buenos Aires, so big you would need a life to know the whole town, is like a rude lady hard to ride. For that second time, here, in the town of los Portenos, the city is giving herself a bit more to me. And gives me also that special feeling to be part of it…

BAVARIA . Juni 2017

JUNE 20, 2017

WHERE
Free state of Bavaria / Germany

ABOUT

Thanks to my music, I ve been travelling in a lot of places and countries those last years. And if that good feeling of « being like home » is everywhere, there’s one place where it specially makes sense.
In Bavaria, 4 years ago, I met a label, gutfeeling records, and a family ; Ernie, G.Rag, Hagen, Léonie, Marketa…
In june 2017, I stopped for a few days off.
After an 11 hours drive and some gigs in Kön, I had first 2 days in Rott am Inn, by Hagen and Leonie. They settled down here, in an old school house. Leonie is a great artist, I took here some pics of her work (a wired crushed clock on the wall). We spent those 2 days in the garden,building with Hagen a brand new terrasse ; it’s good to feel grounded !
Back to Munich on tuesday ! There, I had to meet the gutfeeling friends for an acoustic gig on the shore of the Isar. A wild river downtown, a bridge for the trains, two drums, horns and tuba, guitars ; they do it every year, and it’s getting bigger every year… So it goes ; americana, bavarian, carribean and no waves songs, young an old people dancing together all around… And while I am playing a few drums with, I got that words in my mind : « Bayern, Frei Staat », Bavaria, state of freedom, and I know my friends and all people around got that spirit deep in the ground and are working every day to keep it alive !

AUBRAC . FRANCE . Juin 2017

JUNE 10, 2017

WHERE
Plateau de l’Aubrac / June 2017

ABOUT
It’s a hidden and secret place in France, a small piece of Ireland lost  and forgotten in the Massif Central… Large skies, unconstant weather, strange stones over the fileds. Some pilgrims pass through all the day, heading Santiago while Ernie is singing « I m just goin over Jordan, I m just going over home »…
