*Could a partial Fugees reunion happen this spring in New Orleans?
Former members Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill were just announced as performers at the 2011 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, joining a bill that features such artists as Willie Nelson, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, Arcade Fire, Wilco, Cyndi Lauper and John Legend & The Roots.
Those performers will join hundreds of Louisiana artists, including Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Irma Thomas, Pete Fountain, Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers and rapper Mystikal.
Festival producer Quint Davis says this year’s lineup delivers an unprecedented balance of the traditional and the contemporary.
The seven-day event runs April 29 to May 1 and May 5-8 at the Fair Grounds Race Course.
