This Week on American Routes: Festivals Acadiens et Creoles and New Orleans Nightlife

Feb 13, 2017

Festivals Acadiens et Creoles on American Routes - Friday, February 17th @ noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91

This week American Routes brings you music from the festival stage and the clubs of South Louisiana. We visit some of our favorite nighttime musical haunts in New Orleans and spend time with guitar man Ernie Vincent and jazz historian Bruce Raeburn. Then, allons à  Lafayette for the Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, south Louisiana's annual celebration of Cajun and Creole music, food and culture. We'll hear classic performances from the early days of the festival, talk with founder and scholar Barry Ancelet and sample some of the sights and sounds from the festival grounds.
