I like music but can barely whistle a dirge let alone a tune. I think I’m fortunate that I like many types of music from classical to pop and rock and most shades in between.
Not everything though. Much of Jazz leaves me bemused. And as for electronic music. It just makes me grimace and turn right off. Memories of Rolf Harris and his Stylophone must have been the reason for this. Which is sad because I was a great fan of Rolf when I was younger.
Anyway, I digress.
Yesterday was 21 June and this meant the Fête de la Musique in many cities around the world including Menton.
We spent the evening going from one show to another, many of them given by young people who had tons of talent and, more importantly, the commitment to music which meant they slogged hard to give their audience entertainment.
It was a great night and a great way to start the summer.
Just a note that tomorrow, I’ve got the second of my interviews, this time with Ty Johnston, the fantasy, horror and literary fiction author. Next weekend I’m interviewing SJA Turney about his historical fiction.
For those of you who missed David Gaughran talking about his book ‘A Storm Hits Valparaiso’ and his earlier one about his book ‘Let’s Get Digital’ you can find them here.
