Cognac Blues Passions - 2009
Opening night tonight in Jarnac on the Ile Madame....I was there this time last year to see The Commitments open the festival and it has to be the most magical concert venue in France.
In the middle of the charente, overlooking the lock and the Courvoisier chateau it's like a private concert with a capacity of just 1,300 people.
Tonight it's the turn of James Hunter to open the festival. Sadly we're not going but it's forecast to be a beautiful evening and I'm looking forward to the five days of the festival immensely.
