On an otherwise dark and gloomy Friday, February 21st, nearly 200 area children packed the Larchmont Village Center to “Shake Their Chillies Out” with multi-talented Armelle Gloaguen and her band. The winter chill stood no chance as Armelle and her band-mates led the children through song after song, some quite familiar and some completely new. Variety was the order of the day as she performed a global-array of hot tunes that engage all ages.
