Pour la première fois, le groupe écossais/irlandais/australien, The BordererS » se produira durant le Festival Interceltique de LORIENT (1er au 10 Août 2014)
Du fait de leur venue en Europe, l’AFA avait été contactée par leur leader, Jim Paterson et a pu ainsi, être l’intermédiaire entre Lisardo Lombardia, Directeur Général du Festival et Kathleen O’Malley, responsable en Australie (vous reporter à l’article dans la rubrique : ANTIPODE Mag).
Le souhait le plus cher du groupe était de se produire à Lorient : leur vœu est exaucé.
