+ Jeanne + St Petersburg
@ Scopitone , Paris March 16th 2010

St Petersburg

Mohna played an Oliver Peel session a couple of days ago tonight she's headlining @ Scopitone club situated in the heart of Paris between the Opéra and the Louvre.
Lots of known faces from the folk movement.

St Petersburg is opening, between Nick Drake and Neil Young ( That's what THEY say), short set of laid back acoustic songs in front of a very quiet audience , it will be the same for the other artists.
When the lights go out no one is speaking, a good point for this "trendy" club.

Then we have a last minute addition with Jeanne , playing her accordeon over a homemade projection recorded on Super 8mm film.
Very experimental, you could hear a pin drop during her 10 min "performance", here in its entirety:

Last is German girl Mohna.
She has a very soft childish voice, she's on her own playing the piano.
Call it indie, ambient. It's very special.
