Editorial: February 2016

Another month of French music passes, and while January is traditionally a quieter month there has been no shortage of interesting releases in the past few weeks.

This looks set to continue this month, with plenty of interesting things coming out, and more events of note in the diary over the next few weeks.

February sees Johnny Hallyday play shows in Paris, elsewhere we are fully in awards season, with the Oscars, the Césars and most significantly the Victoures de la Musique on February 12. I'll take a look at what's on the shortlist and details of my predictions ahead of the event.

Meanwhile I've got a few interesting things coming up, with the fist big interview of the year appearing here on the site in the next couple of  days.

As always, I can be contacted on johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be. I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do get in touch.

The blog is also on Twitter as @viveleroq or you can find me at @karnag

If you're around Facebook, remember to like the French Music Podcast UK page, where you can get regular updates with both fresh and vintage French music.

Thanks as always to the French Music Office in London and to the Institut francais in London for their help and encouragement.

Merci et à bientôt

John K
