The schedule of music performance has been posted on the Festival de Musique Acadienne et Créole website.  Music by date and time and by stage.   The festival begins Friday evening, Oct. 11 at the festival grounds and goes through Sunday, Oct. 13.  (In past years the festival has begun in downtown Lafayette.)   The Scène Ma Louisiane is the permanent main stage, the Salle de Danse is the tent dance hall,  in Girard Park, and the Scène Mon Héritage is the smaller, open air stage near the crafts area.

This year there are some eyebrow-raising acts, neither Cajun, nor Creole nor zydeco.  The Creole Stringbeans are an excellent rhythm and blues band from New Orleans, with Derek Huston of the Iguanas on saxophone.  The Mercy Brothers are an old-time gospel group with modern humor.  TK Hulin and Smoke play swamp pop.  The Sons of Voodoo (video) are a Cajun band but not one with which I’m familiar.  In the Louisiana Folk Roots Atelier tent you’ll find musicians talking about their music with performances.
