Dear Simmance-listeners,

our newest CD "Qui êtes-vous?" (french: "Who are you?") is ready and can be ordered straight away. It is the product of our work and passion over the long winter months. This time, the music has been arranged by Alexander Simmance.

Happy listening!

Yippi, it´s there! Exactly 10 days ago we received delivery of our newest CD! We´ve been working hard this summer - since the recording we have been singing and playing on the best-known markets of the Luberon apart from two short stays in Germany and a short holiday in Italy.

Dear friends, we hope you had a good start to the new year!

With the help of bamboo poles and blankets we´ve erected a small recording cabin in our music-/ guestroom and Chris is working enthusiastically on a new CD which will be released sometime this year. We visit Germany in early Aril for the Craft and Pottery Market in Ditzingen. Till then - we´ll be recording!

For this early Christmas time we say "goodbye" to the german pedestrian zones! There´s a warm "thank you" to all listeners - we´re playing for you. Now we´ll spend the festive days with our families before we return home in the new year.

We have been in Germany for two markets to get some savings together for the upcoming winter. Back in the south we get greeted by rain. For one whole week we are not singing but concentrating on creative work and with that (and our paraffin-heater) we are looking forward to the cooler season.
