Hamawe Roots Festival, 26-7 May 2012

The Hamawe Roots Festival will be held on 26-7 May 2012 at the Roiseux d'Hamawé farm just off the N82 between Virton and Arlon in Belgium. The festival programme has a strong backbone of Cajun music, headed by the Savoy Family Band (USA) and several French Cajun bands, with plenty of Cajun food available.

Bluegrass and old-time music are represented by two bands from Belgium - Blue Maxx (photo above; also to be seen on YouTube) and the Straps - and the Rockridge Brothers from Sweden. Full details in French and English are on the Festival website.
