PARIS – I’ve waited to run this post as a preview to the Rush Bar’s open mic this coming Monday, in Paris, rather than running it as a post-view. (Does this word exist?) It is a way of compensating for what has become my favourite open mic in Paris of the moment, for which I am writing far too many blog posts – but not praising enough!

Last Monday’s edition was as warm as ever, and in addition to many regular musicians, there is a constant flow of new ones, providing just the refreshing feel that any open mic needs to remain vital.

See you Monday….
