Bio (-> short bio)

2008, 24th february, Trento. A very special moment in our "bio": we met Alan Stivell! After an unforgettable concert we went together to a restaurant and we had the chance to talk with the biggest "Maestro" of the celtic music. Many thanks to Fausto Bonfanti, the organizer of the concert, who introduced us to Alan. Au revoir, master!
