A renowned painter and singer-songwriter who has been based in Normandy for many years, Mark Fry recorded Dreaming With Alice in 1972. It is an album which remains a cornerstone of the English psychedelic folk scene. A cult classic, it changed hands between music fans for a small fortune until its reissue in the 00s.
Fry is a musician who very rarely performs live, and he was joined for this unique concert by Aine O'Dwyer on harp and Michael Tanner (Plinth, The A. Lords) on guitar. With a new album, I Lived In Trees, just recorded, Mark gave the 7ème Ciel audience the chance to be the first to hear his ethereal folk new songs.
Due to bad weather, the concert moved to the attic of the Lavoir Moderne Parisien, a venue which is run by contemporary creation local activists, located in the same block as the 7ème Ciel towers.
In 2008, whilst involved in many musical and film activities, Chloe Dunn and Alban Place Verghnes formed We Were Hunters. The Anglo-French duo travelled around Britain for almost a year, coming up with the idea of exploring traditional English sounds in order to export some of the country's musical heritage.
At the time of the concert, We Were Hunters were based in Paris, preparing their self-titled debut EP.
