Everybody was there
The entire family of Breton music united on one stage to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Keltia-Musique, and to pay tribute to its founder Hervé Le Meur who had been a paternal figurehead to all its members until his death in 1996. Hervé Le Meur was President of the Kemper Bagad, and a director of BAS (the federation of ringers), and remained faithful to Breton music throughout his life, and even in the 1980's when it lost popularity for a time.
Bagad Kemper concentrated their thoughts on their former leader as they
played the concert's opening number - a brilliant dance which was performed
by the Mederien Penhars.
audience were in raptures, needless to say. They numbered around 3 or
4,000 either seated or standing around the front of the stage. The "fest-vraz"
started very quickly. Immediately after the Kemper Bagad had finished,
the Ours du Scorff made the audience laugh and sing, and the whole event
turned into one gigantic party which went on through the night.
