Traditional music on Basque Country tour

Does anyone who has taken the Basque Country tour recall if there were many traditional music options in the cities on the itinerary?

Don't remember any music options though at about 9AM on a Sunday I was meandering through the streets of San Sebastián when a local marching band paraded through the streets. Great way to start the day!

We took the Basque tour last September and went in early to stay in St. Jean de Luz. While there we saw posters for a concert to be held in the Eglise of Saint Jean Baptiste. The church was the site of the marriage of Louis XIV and Maria Theresa of Spain. The concert was given by the Basque Choeur d'Hommes Arin. We found it by chance, but it was a highlight of our travels. It seemed they might regularly give concerts there.

The Basque tour was wonderful. The people, the history, the food, our guide - we loved it all.
