Hello everyone,

Meylie Mellow and I are organizing a ukulele festival in France, June 17th, 18th & 19th, 2011.

The FIUL (Festival International de UkulÚlÚ de Lerrain) will take place in Lerrain, a small village of about 500 souls, located in the Vosges region (north-eastern France). This region is famous for its stunning natural environment (mountains, pine forests, lakes and valleys) as well as its picturesque villages (churches, abbeys, castles) and, of course, its gastronomy!

Inspired by Mainland Mike's UWC, with our added "French Touch", the FIUL will be a laid back international ukulele get-together where every single player will be welcomed and considered as a star no matter his/her level. Our goal is to focus and to put into the light casual ukulele players thru our festival & website. On a daily basis, we update our site, www.fiul.fr, with contents sent to us by attending ukulelists: interv'ukes, pictures, songs...

We've launched this project back in October 2010 and we're working on it everyday since. If you're interested in joining us register thru our website's contact form, or directly on festival.ukulele@gmail.com.

Best Regards,

Hmmm !- A little Summer Holiday dans un petit village qu'on connait pas de tout?. Sounds like a trip across La Manche might be in order!
