If any friends out there get Canada’s TFL channel (French language television) you can check out a documentary I was involved in along with Douglas Hawf, Natalie Villmer, and Joe Politte. It focuses on French across North America and the crew stopped in to talk to us about Illinois-Missouri French…the music and the culture. It may feature some music taken at the Ste Genevieve French Heritage Festival (Sandra S Cabot) and in Old Mines, MO (Cindy Drummond Merx). I think my part is in French and English. Click below to see the trailer. And here’s a link for the website: It’s called “French en Amerique.” We’ll have to wait for it to be posted as a video to watch.
