Cats and Dogs… and more Dogs

The Candies are lucky… in that we get to travel around France (and beyond) and we get to sing in some rather swanky venues!  But that doesn’t mean that we’re not happy to sing in more humble abodes too. On a scale of one to ten, Dawn is an eleven when it comes to caring for dogs and animals… Lynn…

Wow!

The Candies would be the first to admit that we get to visit some pretty amazing venues; and todays was no exception. We were heading about 3 hours south east, to the little village of Onet-Le-Chateau… but our destination wasn’t the ancient and magnificent castle the dominates the village… but  a few kilometres further on at Chateau de Labro.   This…

The venue was in the north of the Dordogne in the village of Jumilhac Le Grand.  The village lies on the road followed by Richard the Lionheart and is also on one…

We…
