Multidisciplinary collective of young artists brought together by Raphaël Guattari
An accordionist, musician of the backstreets, bewildered by two women who don't let themselves be fooled, one a nightingale of the suburbs, the other a gossipy and confident songstress, such is the programme of this joyful, unexpected and invigorating tour de chant, taking its source in the songs of the pre- and post-war period.
With Véronique Mathais, Cathy Crèche and Baptiste Touret
A taxidermist dreaming of an unlikely love affair with a violinist, a prostitute who hopes to become a singer in the corridors of the metro, an artist-megalomaniac ready to do anything to succeed: this crazy duo takes you on a burlesque, fantastical, even phantasmagorical journey with its humorous and surprising songs where the classical music of Mozart, Chopin or Beethoven rubs shoulders with Juliette, Jean Guidoni or Bertolt Brecht.
With Aline Pelletier and David Barral
Four unconditional Beatles lovers bring the music of George, John, Paul and Ringo to Blois with a series of covers of the legendary group.
With Frédéric Peslier, Claude Rochais, Philippe Ménagé and Thierry Morchoire

In the intimacy of a guitar and a voice, Leiho takes you on a journey through an uninhibited pop-folk universe.
Through a groove influenced by soul and R&B, let yourself be carried by a warm voice in melodies that are sometimes melancholic, sometimes light.
Folk, blues and text songs punctuate Pierre Boisseau's particular universe. With sensitivity but also humour, this outspoken "sower of words" colours his songs with guitar, double bass and drums, a tasty mix that reinforces the acoustic of his performance.
With Pierre Boisseau, Pascal Grelat and Christian Dard
The Baron on double bass, the Marquis on vocals and banjo, the Godfather on drums, and their companions, distil a swamp jazz with the colours of Louisiana. Their flamboyant personalities promise feverish moments, punctuated by rock'n'roll, gospel, country music and New Orleans jazz and rumba.
