French music night on Roots and Shoots Monday 13th August

After a trip to France and a visit to Le Grand Bal d'Europe at St.Gervais d'Auverne I came away inspired by the French roots dance music I saw and heard there. So Monday's show was almost entirely music of a French nature, mostly by French bands.
