Balfa Toujours at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Oct. 13, 2018
Balfa Toujours performed at the Salle de Danse tent Saturday afternoon Oct. 13, 2018, during Festival de Musique Acadienne et Créole, part of Festivals Acadiens et Créoles in Girard Park, Lafayette.

Dirk Powell was a surprise guest for the 25th anniversary of Balfa Toujour performing at Festivals Acadiens. As he used to years ago, he performed “Fiddlesticks” (part of the Balfa tradition) with Kevin Wimmer. Then the two, joined by Christine Balfa on triangle, played “Reel à Frugé,” and, seated on a stool, Dirk played accordion with the band while Christine sang “Deux Voyages” and “À Vieille Terre Haute,” two songs they co-wrote. In addition, most of the members of “Bonsoir, Catin” performed several songs during Balfa Toujours’ set.
