Tonight sees the Go North festival kick off in Inverness in Scotland, a two-day event for the creative industries in the country and elsewhere, giving a rare -platform to a couple of French acts.
There are talks and workshops, and training opportunities, and also a number of bands playing, at venues across the city, including a few of interest to this blog.
French acts Griefjoy and Le Prince Miiaou play at the Mad Hatters venue tonight, and if you are anywhere near the city it's a great opportunity to catch two very strong French acts.
Griefjoy released their debut album to critical acclaim last year. A new edition of it came out earlier this year.
They've been playing live extensively in support of the album and the show in Inverness will be a great opportunity of the highland capital to get a taste of their epic electro pop.
I mentioned Le Prince Miiaou when she played a session for Acoustic last month on TV5Monde off the back of the release of her fourth album Where is the Queen? , which came out earlier this year.
As I mentioned earlier, featuring a French artist playing at a Scottish event is a far too infequent occurance. Hopefully we'll see more in the future
