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".
What part of France? I have a couple of friends in Paris and Champagne (Bar-sur-Aube) I'd like to encourage to attend.
Is that in St. Landry parish?
Sorry, I misread you headline Maz, and I couldn't resist....Cory

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.
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...
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?
When is the Saulieu Festival?

Yes, Wilson will be playing Saulieu, and I think we're going to be playing (my band) around there in August too.
You should come to Holland as well.
