Maybe I need a new pair of glasses but I've searched through this forum and do not see any mention of this NYC festival and workshops anywhere. And finding the lineup with schedules is equally as challenging via Stephane's website (and google!).
From what I have heard, Adrien Moingard will be there tomorrow (Saturday) as well as Les Doigts de L'Homme....is this correct? Any detailed help with facts and play times would be greatly appreciated!
My apologies if this info was posted anywhere earlier, but time is running out to make travel plans...

I just noticed Joe's Pub (the venue) has posted full video of some of the shows. Here's the Friday night Zaiti show, with Adrien Moignard and Benoit Convert:

They've also posted videos of Babik, Hot Club of Detroit, Alfonso Ponticelli and Sinti Swing (Sebastien Felix's band).
My whole band left a gig to see the Zaiti gig on Saturday and sat upstairs. The singer/lead player and I had the geek out spots on the wall. Ben and Adrian Moignard were absurdly good. Singer is French so he was chatting up Moignard after the show and invited him down to our regular gig in Jersey City. Fat chance, but you never know.
Yes, that was me! And a bunch of other DjangoBooks forum-posters were sitting in the tables around me -- Ben W., Tom L., Dave G.
