Celebrating European Music Day, 21 June, from 21:00 to 23:00, the summer music festival of the Historical Museum of Crete AS THE NIGHT FALLS opens for the fourth consecutive year with Pink Tales.
Pink Tales promise us a trip in their musical plane. Their prose bridges the gap between musical styles from many different places and cultures. Viewing the discovery of love and its reversals with a kindly eye, they land in various airports around the world, telling love stories.

Their musical luggage contains a mixture of blues, rock, jazz and world music with favourite songs ranging from the 60s to the 90s.
The group consists of musicians Pelagia Mourouzi (vocals), Nikos Vergos (electric guitar), Orfeas Mitsotakis (acoustic guitar) and Christos Sagient (drums, cajon). Pelagia Mourouzi is already well known from her work with Stamatis Kraounakis’s group Speira-Speira

During the music events, the HMC permanent collections and temporary exhibitions will be open to the public for a night-time tour, from 20:00 to 23:00. The admission price of €5.00 includes the music event. Cool drinks are available at the Museum bar. The Museum Shop, with the publications of the Cretan Society of Historical Studies and works by artists and young designers, will also be open.
