Prior to Yann Tiersen recording the album, a film of him performing ‘Porz Goret’ on his home island of Ushant (‘Eusa’ in Breton) has inspired fans to record their own versions of the song and now Tiersen is launching a competition to find the best and most interesting interpretations of tracks from EUSA. There are three categories: Best Overall Performance, Most Interesting Location and Best Non-Piano Performance, fans are asked to upload their interpretations to and three winners, chosen by Yann Tiersen, will win a signed toy piano (the same as Tiersen has been performing with on the current tour), plus signed EUSA goodies. The competition closes on 13 January, winners will be announced on 23 January. Further information available from http://myeusa.com
