Bonjour -

Just a note of information on an upcoming festival (FREE) here in East Lansing, Michigan for those folks anywhere in the area. The Great Lakes Folk Festival will have it's 6th year Aug. 10-12.

It's a wonderful event (family friendly, free parking, food, etc.) that offers a wide variety of music and dance. This year, of particular interest to this group might be Asani (native Cree/metis female vocal group from Alberta, Canada), Dominique Dupuis (Acadian fiddler from New Brunswick) and Michele Choiniere (Franco-American chanteuse from St. Albans, Vermont). With Michele will also be Rachel Aucoin and Sabin Jacques. A treat for all!

The festival runs Friday night at 6:30 through Sunday at 6:30 and many of these
artists will play 2-4 times during that period, so it is worth the drive. To see the website and hear sound slips of the performers, click this link.


Thanks, Dawn, for the news.
