Among the latter is the Sunday closer featuring GIVERS featuring Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, the husband-wife team of Tom Tom Club and Talking Heads fame, Dickie Landry and others. This makes us go "hmmmm." In a good way.
Best act returning after a several-year hiatus: the funky French second-line group Ceux Qui Marchent Debout. And among groups who performed recently and we can now call regulars — Red Baraat and Balkan Beat Box. Good stuff all. (The full lineup is below; for more check out FIL's website.)
We also love the cross branding happening between FIL and Festivals Acadiens et Créoles; the former is a presenting sponsor for a few of the acts at this year's FIL.
