Amateur guitarist and singer, Rémi reinterprets French songs from the "chansons à textes" popular tradition. From Brassens to La Rue Ketanou, the guitar offers the surroundings in which burlesque and/or heavy lyrics seek to deliver an honest humanist message to whoever wishes to question received ideas, or less pompously pause for a hopefully enjoyable moment! Rémi will play in the afternoon during the market.
"Wine Direction" is composed of Etienne (ukelele) from Burgundy, Lio (guitar) from Châteauneuf, Foué (bass) from Bordeaux and Bert (drums) from Pornic and proud of it! We are all wine lovers tweaking global hits into rock tunes with a French flair. We've been together for a year, this is our first gig, à consommer sans modération! Catch this short and full of energy set from 8.30 to 8.45!
