Micamac

Until a few years ago we used to go on holiday to Concarneau every summer and always enjoyed listening to Micamac performing at the entrance to the Ville Close. Just wondered whether they are still operating after all these years or have hung up their pipes.

They were certainly playing during the month of August. We were there several times. Micamac and the whole Vile Close experience are both truly delightful.

Blimey this thread just came up on a search - I just found a Micamac album that we bought about 10 years ago and started listening to it. Glad to hear they're still around! If you're in the area, definitely worth going to watch.

We've just watched them! Had my baby boy with me, strange to think the first time we saw them I was about 5, over thirty years ago. Only two of them, and only recognised one, but sounded just the same!

So pleased to hear they are still going! It has to be at least 20 years since I was last in Concarneau. I heard them play in a sort of amphitheatre near the harbour. Quite a unique experience which I've never forgotten. If you get a chance to hear them, then go!
