Strumming with Hank

Marc Tuddenham says;-
Since 1992 I have been going to France to the Django Reinhardt festival every June in Samois Sur Seine , just outside Fontainebleau, 40 miles south of Paris. Django lived their for the last few years of his life before he died in 1953.. He was a gypsy and at least half of the people who attend the festival are genuine gypsies too. (naturally, most of them claim to be related to their hero!)
To cut a long story short, Hank has gotten himself smitten with the gypsy jazz music these last few years, and runs a gypsy jazz band in Australia, where he now lives. There are dozens of Django festivals across the world now as the style has become much more popular in recent years.
Hank goes to the Samois festival every year now, and I stay in accommodation diectly opposite the festival site (The site is on a small island in the river) and the owner of the house invites some of the famous people there for a meal in her huge garden on the Saturday - and we all get to play together. Hence I was sitting chatting to Hank and his wife over a meal and a glass (or two) of wine. After which we all had a jam together and those who don't play just watch. I got to play Sleep Walk with Hank, which was kind of weird, but great fun.
Can't think of a better way of spending a sunny afternoon!
