La Bonne Heure the multi na­tional folk group with a dis­tinct lo­cal flavour was di­verted on their planned re­turn to France.

It meant de­lay­ing their jour­ney back from their short lo­cal tour , but the trio were de­lighted to jump at a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to show­case their blos­som­ing tal­ent to a gi­ant au­di­ence.

For the group was in­vited to play at the Elec­tric Pic­nic fes­ti­val on Satur­day week.

Black­rock’s own Brian Holmes, a ver­i­ta­ble one man or­ches­tra, who sings, plays the gui­tar as well as the bass drum and man­dolin is a key mem­ber of the highly tal­ented group which is less than two years in ex­is­tence.

The other two mem­bers are Madalina Drou­vin, a Ro­ma­nian, a baroque vi­o­lin­ist and, Hugo Cor­don­nier a French ukule­lest. The pair also sing.

The group has un­der­taken two short tours to these parts since March, and proved a big hit at lo­cal venues, and are to re­turn next March.
