Video from the Tour [opens in YouTube]

These videos are amateur productions, made with love, and capture some of the alfresco experience of the PIPEDREAMS spring 2010 tour in the South of France. Some of the performances are by amateur members of the tour group, trying their hands on strand and wonderful instruments. Some of the playing, the obviously better performances, features either resident musicians or our tour guide, Jean-Luc Guidarini.
