I felt it was important to create a link between this very powerful place, Ushant, and the encounters with top-level artists coming from different horizons and experiencing music as a shared pleasure and a joy.

2010 will thus be welcoming the Tenth Edition of "Female Musicians at Ushant". This a very new festival whose national and regional media aura is directly due to the concept on which the event is based: encounters of women musicians on the Isle of Ushant in homage to the Ushant women who, still today, express their profound specificity and originality."
