  • Startijenn

    In the town of Chartres, just an hour outside of Paris, popular Celtic folk band, Startijenn, plays to the packed town square. Throughout the summer the town stages several open-air free concerts featuring a whole host of bands and musical genres.

    The Celtic music of Brittany, energetically adapted by Startijenn, brought out a large crowd of all ages. Many of those present were dancing the rather peculiar traditional ‘jig’ that is associated with the ‘Breton style’ of folk music.
