A Creusoise organizes concerts at home to support private artists on stage

There will be mini festival tunes in Viges in the town of Domeyrot in Creuse this summer. Erika, psycho-bodily therapist installed in this locality will organize four concerts at her place for help private stage musicians by the health crisis.

It all started with a Facebook group, “Live shows in your garden” to which a friend of Erika invited her. “I said to myself well yes why not! Help artists to perform, with the covid crisis … they are really struggling, they cannot work” and then “It brings people over to the house, it’s nice for us too.”

About fifty people per concert

The aim is also to promote local groups. They are listed on a map of France on the Facebook group, for the organizers of private concerts to contact them. “I listened to what they were doing because I wanted things that I liked, then I contacted them and we agreed, because they will be paid, everything will be done according to the rules. art.”

Tickets will cost around 8 euros for adults (over 18). Erika goes so open the doors of its large land and its old barn to artists as well as to around fifty people for each concert. “Covid health obligations do not apply to an individual, they are recommendations “ she emphasizes. “We are going to ask people to be careful, with the hydroalcoholic gel, those who want to put on the mask put it on, social distancing … that’s why I minimize the gauge, because there is room but still.” And to appeal to common sense with a smile “he who is sick, he does not come!”

It is necessary to book either via the Facebook page “L’Antre d’Imala” or at On the program, mainly a song with a committed text. The group Du vent dans les Bronches will be in Viges on June 12, Gaëtan Aurion on July 17. A children’s show with the group Chams is scheduled for August 8th and Ajma will end this concert series on September 18th.
