The annual French Quarter Festival is just around the corner, April 9-11.  And it’s free!  Mostly New Orleans-related styles, such as traditional jazz, there are some Cajun and zydeco acts this year on this lineup.  Friday, 4/9:  ZydePunks, Waylon Thibodeaux, Lost Bayou Ramblers, J.J. Caillier and the Zydeco Knockouts.  Saturday 4/10:  Bruce Daigrepont Cajun Band, Les Freres Michot (Michot Brothers), and Donna Angelle and the Zydeco Posse.  Sunday, 4/11:  Sunpie Barnes, Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys, Jonno & Bayou Seville (do they mean Bayou DeVille? or has Jonno got a new band?), Chubby Carrier, and more.  It’s cheaper than Jazz Fest, though it’s also spread out all over the Quarter.  It gets bigger every year.  Come on down!
