It will be Sunday, September 30 in Florac, at the Temple, at 17h, at the invitation of the Association On The Way Robert Louis Stevenson.
In the program :
• The Travel Songs (composer R. Vaughan Williams),
• melodies on poems by Child’s Garden of verses by Reynaldo Hahn,
• an unpublished musical on the Country of the Camisards, and some other surprises.

‘Pipes to the Point’ was the première of the story of RLS’ return to North Berwick in 1887, following upon the death of his father in May of that year.
On this occasion, RLS was accompanied by a young piper from the local school, echoing the playing of Alan Breck Stewart in Kidnapped.
RLS reminisces and looks forward to his future triumphs.
A great time was had by a fascinated crowd of onlookers both near and far (we are talking bagpipes!). The filming of the event will hopefully be turned into a thing of beauty and of much wider value.

There will be at least two Scottish men in kilts!
