Bernie Bonvoisin: Tout un Foin Festival

An acoustic appearance by former Trust vocalist Bernie Bonvoisin at the weekend, with a set at the Tout un Foin Festival in Bayeux, Normandy.

Trust were proper legends of the French rock scene in the 80s, with their work a high water mark of the country's metal scene in that era, both critically and commercially.

They were one of the few French acts to make major inroads in the UK, no doubt helped by their albums being availble in both French and English language versions.

Bonvoisin has worked as a film industry as a director in recent years.

It's the fifth time the festival has been held, and although a smaller event with a smaller crowd than organisers hoped for, but an acoustic  set by Bonvoisin would have been well worth catching.

Hopefully there will be more to come from M. Bonvoisin before too long.

He played with Iso Diop, who playe bass on Trust's most recent album,2008's  Treize à table.

Other acts that played at the festival included Vianney, Miossec and Minuit.
