Opened in 1966, the store is home to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival "Lundi Gras" and "Cajun / ZydeCoa." There are a number of performers taking part in a virtual Cajune / Creole music festival called "Swamp City" at the Savoy Music Center in Baton Rouge. The jam sessions are held there most Saturday mornings and are open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. In the early hours of Saturday, a small group of musicians from all over Louisiana, and some of them even from Alabama and Mississippi, gather in what they call "Sawgrass City," or as they call it, the prairie land of Cjun.
The city centre of Eunice is presented throughout the day, and the musical performances scheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday will give visitors the opportunity to follow the historical development of Cajun music. This groundbreaking CD / DVD tells the story of Cjune / Creole music in Louisiana. It is a very well known and sought after record, which is part of the Generation Next collection.
The classical Cajun songs include the turn-of-the-century dance melodies popularized by Dewey and his brothers in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
In the second golden age of Cajun music, the accordion regained its popularity in this age. The violin was one of the first instruments to be used frequently in French Louisiana music, and the tradition of the twin violin is the predecessor of the "caj un" music that is heard today. While music was brought to Louisiana by early immigrants and mixed with popular American tunes, it was represented by the twin tradition - the violin, as it is called today, and this music is what we know today as "cajuns," as we call it.
If you live in Louisiana, you might think Cajun and Zydeco music have disappeared. Like a pandemic that has struck, it has fallen silent in recent decades, with a few rare exceptions.
I attended the Rendez - Vous des Cajuns, which will take place on Saturday, August 26th, at the Texan Natural History Museum in Belton, Texas. The musical aces play from 8 to 9.30 pm, then meet for a concert at 7.15 pm. I didn't know until I think it was 61, but I'm sure I wanted to record it first because there are so many people doing it. Since I always drive from Houston to New Orleans, I have been driving through the area at least once a week for years.
Marc Broussard, member of the New Orleans Cajun Band and singer-songwriter, will perform at the Louisiana Folklife Festival ballad workshop. Marc will introduce visitors to a series of songs they have never heard before, as well as some of his favourite ballads.
He has taught and performed with the New Orleans Cajun Band, the Louisiana Folklife Festival Ballad Workshop, and with many other local and national artists including John Prine, Dixie Chicks, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, and many others.
Jerry is an important part of Cajun music history, but little is known about his music being one of the oldest and most popular forms of music in the United States. It comes from the Acadians, who were brutally driven out of Canada by the British more than 250 years ago. Music has been played for thousands of years in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and other parts of Louisiana and is the source of many of our country's most famous and beloved songs.
