Free for children under 12, € 5 for accompanying adults Parents and children are invited to open their ears and awaken their taste buds around a brunch from 2 p.m. Janet is very sad, the pretty turtledove has lost her husband and she is not in good shape. Marie and her happy accomplices are determined to give him back a smile by all means.
Cross-border meeting between Marie Tout Court, her musicians and cellist Jacques Bouduban, for a very special adventure: to revive and discover the popular songs of the Comtoise from both sides of the border. Their desire: to bring up to date with their own seasoning these traditional texts and melodies.

Parker and Yanowski? Anti-conformists, that’s for sure. Revolutionaries, perhaps. Staggering, that’s clear… Awesome? Without a doubt. Yes, there is a part of genius in these two, in their approach, their audacity, their virtuosity in exploring the depths of the human soul to reveal them to us in the broad daylight of theatricality. Discovering them is more than a pleasure: a shock. Telluric.
Yanowski: vocals – Fred Parker: piano.
Undoubtedly humanist and in love with words, the singer is atypical, offbeat, against the tide. Funny and moving, he is committed to his time, a human in tune with suffering and struggles, a standing utopian.
Rémo Gary: vocals – Clélia Bressat-Blum: piano.
Evelyne Gallet is like an old friend who shows up one evening with her bottle of white under her arm to cheer you up, make you laugh, and when the bottle is empty confides a little and makes you redden your eyes!
Evelyne Gallet: vocals, guitar – Arnaud Jouffroy: guitar.
La Machine Bal folk to close the festival with a dance!
Led by singer-violinist Julien Barbances and by the hurdy-gurdy of Gregory Jolivet, this quartet with reggae and Afro-Cuban influences performs dance concerts or ball (de) concertant based on popular music from Berry, Bourbonnais and of Auvergne. Having perfectly appropriated the particularities of their musical roots, they projected them to other countries by inventing a sound. Unique sound, magical sound. A sort of very airy and hypnotic music, where the bewitching drones, the melodies at the same time heartbreaking and dancing, the raw tone of voice, the acoustic and tribal groove of the percussion / double bass rhythm, keep ringing. A group whose musical identity we immediately recognize after a few seconds of listening. In this case without doubt one of the best of its kind in Europe.
Gregory Jolivet: hurdy-gurdy – Jean-Laurent Cayzac: double bass, cello, – Marc Riou: percussions -Julien Barbances: vocals, bagpipes, violin.
