LE Boulve (46) is a sleepy village halfway between Prayssac and Montcuq, in the Lot, with a modest medieval chateaux overlooking a modest medieval church and a modest medieval, writes Mike Jones.
Very little happens here for most of the year but each August that most wonderful of settings is where the great and good gather for the Boogie in Le Boulve.
This year the date is Friday 15 August - the village square is set with tables and decked with lights
Come along and bring a picnic and we'll put on a great concert with three excellent local bands. We'll provide the wine and water, and glasses in case you forget to bring them.
First to play will be a Sophie Celdron and Daniel Prevoteau -otherwise known as Soledad. Sophie has an unforgettable voice and you'll be amazed when she fills the night with her songs in Spanish, French and English
Then Brian Harpwood and Mike Gardiner -playing as Harpwood- bring their country and bluegrass style renowned throughout the Lot.
After the acoustic music, the main group will be the 'Dolly Blues Band'. The lead guitarist is Eric - not the Eric of course - our Eric leads this brilliant band in some great rhythm 'n blues and rock 'n roll classics. We guarantee you'll be dancing the night away!
We start at 8pm and finish towards midnight- depending on how many encores you demand! The price which includes wine from two local producers is 12 euros for adults - (no charge for children under 12 years).
It's a great French setting, music you know and love, and great company- exactly what we all love about summer in France!
