The Festival du violon de Plouneour Menez started in 1990. It is a free bianual festival that celebrates the violin as a popular instrument. The whole festival is built around a gathering of violinists playing a prepared repertoire of a few tunes together. At the relaunch of the festival In 2016 we were 115 fiddlers to play together in the gathering.
There are also concerts, festnoz, workshops and sessions. The concerts are geared towards trad fiddle styles - anything from Irish and Scottish to Klezmer, Breton and Bluegrass. - Classical and Baroque violin may also find its way into the program with concerts in the church.
The next edition is the 9th and 10th of June 2018. So why not bring your fiddle and a tent and come and join us?
