Every kind of Art is represented at David Gabella's convivial gallery in rue Pélegry.
On the evening of 26th November, the space was dedicated to folk music, with keen English guitarists Mark Newman and Michel Griffin, and their singer and musician friends.
There was a sellout crowd - an informed audience, some French, some English.
The evening went like clockwork. In fact, since last March, this group of musicians has got together in the delightful tea room gallery once a month.
Presented with flair and humor, some with improvised double-bass or harmonica accompaniment, performers follow one another on stage with a series of songs in French or English - some sufficiently well-known
that the audience joins in.
Michel Griffin, jazzy poet, by turns clown or romantic, presents his own songs in a charming mid-Atlantic French accent and
with his beautiful deep, soft warm voice. Already known on British (BBC) radio, he arrived in France in 2000 'with the new millenium' and has recorded four CDs.
