Whirlybird – near Lafayette LA
November 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Jim Phillips, Christy Leichty, and their crew of volunteers and friends are creating a music/dance/art scene in St. Landry Parish, north of Lafayette, LA. My friend David Greely introduced us and I’m looking forward to being part of the scene there.
Saturday evening concert sets.
Sunday, midday workshop. Details coming soon. Locations sent with email confirmation of your reservations.
Here’s what their site says:
“Jim Phillips and his wife Christy Leichty are artists and educators who love Cajun and Creole music and the culture so dearly that they moved to Louisiana to help rebuild and work in education after the 2005 hurricanes.
“In addition to their educational endeavors there, they bought an old Texaco distribution center, moved it to a secret location, and outfitted it as a dance hall/theater called The Whirlybird. Some of the biggest names in Cajun music and beyond ‘pass a good time’ there.”
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Come!
