Sziget and Sarzeau

I had a great time recently at Sziget Festival on an island in the middle of the Danube in Budapest, Hungary. My journey there and back by train was quite an adventure and happily I shared it with a good friend Jill Ashby. Sziget is rightly described as Central Europe's global village and there were some fantastic musicians there. 
We travelled on to Szarzeau in Brittany to join friends on a very friendly campsite near the sea. The musicians from Poisson Rouge - whose bass player is rootsandshoots' Martin Henning - were there and went down a storm playing their fantastic dance music in local villages and towns. And how we danced - at Fest Noz and Fest Diaz (the nearest we have are ceilidhs but the Breton events are even more inclusive)!! 
I hope you enjoyed this evening's show and the music played - mostly by artists I saw and heard on my hols.
