I still remember the thrill of finding that first huge collection of French tunes on-line and realizing what joyful music lay in front of me. For me it was Sylvain Piron's Tradfrance site, containing hundreds of tunes in a variety of formats. Jack Humphreys -- a denizen of the Bristol/Bath French sessions -- has taken this into the collaborative realm by establishing a French Tunes Wiki, whereon folks can add, edit, etc. and, doing all those things that wikis do, tap into the French trad crowd wisdom. It's still in the beginning stages, and there are a few too many ads for my taste, but this could be A Great Thing. I will be contributing and utilizing. Well done, Mr. Humphreys.
