Backstage Pass from Blainville Crevon, France ~ June 25, 2014 



Roger spent the day at the ruins in the heart of Normandy. The Archéo Jazz Festival is set in the small town of Blainville Crevon. It was so peaceful to drive from our hotel through the French countryside. 

When we arrived at the festival we were met by Jerome, the festival founder, who told us that this event has been ongoing for 37 years. The atmosphere here is magical. The entire festival is completely run by volunteers - itís truly a community and family event. 

Roger spent time sitting in the ruins, speaking with 30 students from three local music schools and their parents. He answered questions, strummed and signed a student's guitar, and sang a little bit. 

The audience here loves to listen to good music. They appreciated Roger singing his songs to them that they have passed down through the generations and as the grand finale, they awarded him with a grand soccer chant at the end of his show.

Thanks to the group of volunteers who make this festival happen!

We loved it!

Heading to Azores tomorrow, then on to Sofia, Bulgaria on July 1, and then to the US for our third return to Snoqualmie, outside Seattle. We will be ending this leg in the Chicago area at Ribfest, where the majority of the proceeds go to help children and victims of domestic violence. 

Check out our events tab at https://www.Facebook.com/RogerHodgson or the Tour page here on the site, as we just added two more US shows, one in Ridgefield, Connecticut and the other in Detroit, Michigan. Keep checking back, as we will be announcing another show on our events page soon!

Cheers,
Linda
