Hello Summer. It’s Music Time in Uzes!

What better way to welcome in summer in Uzes than with music?

It’s summer in Uzès and time for Fête de la Musique with music ranging from flamenco guitar to folk music, to rock. Stages set up on the street and plazas throughout the historic area were filled with hundreds of spectators taking in every precious moment.

My stage of choice was flamenco. 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, Thierry, welcomed all to 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, Thierry kept busy serving drinks to seated customers, as well as people standing in the crowd.

Down the street, more music in the Place aux Herbes, more bands.

Of course, I was ready for a special night out.

and red shoes with bows …

... and it all ended with a perfect summer sky.
