We went to a concert/live CD-making with the Acadien-Celtic group Vishten on Saturday. It was a great time, and afterwards Pierre Chartrand did a couple of figures of a Quebec dance he'd taught earlier in the year at the BIS.
In the knitting-related part, Emmanuelle Leblanc was introducing a song (Mariez moi, the first track on their first CD, Vishten) and explained that the protagonist says in the song that, if she's not married by the time she's 20, she is going to give up knitting. Emmanuelle then asked if anyone in the audience is a knitter, and I waved my sock! She asked if I was actually knitting during the concert (I was, of course) and she seemed surprised - perhaps she thought I would be too busy to applaud!
Anyway we bought their CDs and pre-ordered the new one. They are pretty fabulous.
