What better way to welcome in summer in Uzes than with music all around town?
It’s Fête de la musique à Uzès with music ranging from flamenco guitar to folk music, to rock. Stages were set up on street corner and plazas throughout the historic area with hundreds of spectators taking in every precious moment.
My venue of choice was flamenco. My new friends from Pittsburgh — fans of Barefoot Blogger! — invited me to join them for dinner at Ma Cantine, directly in front of the street stage.
The friendly owner of Ma Cantine, Terry, welcomed all to join that could squeeze around the tiny tables. Menu selections for the night were limited and reasonably priced. Along with his wife and the Liv Tyler-lookalike server, Terry kept busy serving drinks to seated customers, as well as people standing in the crowd.
Down the street a bit and around the corner, more music in the Place aux Herbes, more bands.
Of course, I should have known it would be a perfect night when I headed out the door wearing
a blue polka-dot dress, a petticoat
and red shoes with bows …
… and it all ended with a perfect summer sky.
