Magnolia Sisters in France

For the Europeans here:
the Magnolia Sisters will be in France from 2nd to 6th June.
Check out my link for more info.

Cheers, Yves

Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

Actually, it's not all of them. It'll be my mom, Jane Vidrine, and Lisa Reed. Anya Schoenegge's pregnant, so I'll be sitting in on guitar. Hope to see you all there!

Re: Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

Hey Sarah,
That's great!
I knew (from Jean-Pierre Bruneau) that Anya Schoenegge's couldn't make it, but I didn't know you will join the sisters...
I just added the good news on Cajun Corner.
Cheers, Yves

Re: Re: Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

Yves--thanks for the very flattering (as usual) note on Cajun Corner. I sent my mom a link to it because I thought you really did a great write-up on the "Mag's".


Where in France?

What part of France? I have a couple of friends in Paris and Champagne (Bar-sur-Aube) I'd like to encourage to attend.

Where is France?

Is that in St. Landry parish?

Sorry, I misread you headline Maz, and I couldn't resist....Cory

Re: Where is France?

Hi Cory,
Next time you come over to Belgium, be sure to let me know in advance!
Cheers, Yves

Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

No time,

Do they also visit the Netherlands? Please let me know, then.
In August, Wilson Savoy comes to the cajun festival at Saulieu, I heard. I think I'm gonna be there.


Re: Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

Hi Gus,

Unfortunately Holland (and Belgium) are not on their programm (yet)... but maybe they're available before 2nd or after 6th June...?
In that case we need to wake up the organisers here...

Groeten, Yves

Re: Re: Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

Yves, great idea. Last year Savoy band was in Belguim, but unfortunately in the south, a long drive. Luckily we have the cajun company in Holland.
They had a great performance in Zevenaar (the Lantaern) a month ago.
But not much people attending, so might be difficult to contract a good band?


Re: Re: Magnolia Sisters in France

When is the Saulieu Festival?
