The international piping festival Le Son Continu is held each year in July near La Chatre in France. Bruce and I went last year and loved it. For this year, I have reserved 4 emplacements at the nearby municipal campsite, where many of the other participants and instrument makers stay, from Tuesday 11th to Monday 17th July, hoping other pipers will join us, particularly those from mainland Europe who don't have much opportunity to meet and play with other pipers. There are also competitions, solo and group, that the bold can enter on the day, and I know they would really enjoy hearing our pipes. I have a couple of folk already interested, so if anyone else would like to join us, please get in touch with me. You can also check out the Le Son Continu Facebook page.
