Louisiana Crossroads is celebrating 20 years this Friday with a special concert curated by multi-instrumentalist Roddie Romero. Lafayette’s legendary concert series has famously brought renowned musicians from all backgrounds on stage with our area’s finest talent for unique, genre-bending musical collaborations. The anniversary concert will feature a large cast of local talent, including country chanteuse Yvette Landry, singer/songwriter K.C. Jones, and R&B crooner Lance Dubroc, among many others. 

Creole Culture Day will be held this Saturday and Sunday at Vermilionville. The annual cultural celebration will give the public a fun and educational dive into South Louisiana folklife. Panel discussions, cooking demonstrations, and music are all set for the weekend celebration. 

Saturday’s festivities will start with a set by accordionist Randall Jackson followed by a gospel music presentation. The day will end with a set by Cedric Watson et Bijou Créole. Corey Ledet will rock the event center with a kick-off performance at 10:00 am, followed by a 2:00-5:00 pm dance set.

The artists performing for this year’s Creole Culture Day and Louisiana Crossroad’s Homecoming concert will be highlighted in the edition of Lafayette Weekly. You’ll hear Cédric Watson’s “TexaCreole Two-Step,” “La La,” and “Ma Petite Femme.” Corey Ledet’s recent radio hit “I’m On a Roll, K.C. Jones’ latest single “Beginnings and Ends,” and Roddie Romero’s take on a Bobby Charles classic are all in this week’s playlist. Tracks from Michael Juan Nunez, Julie Williams, and Smoov Ras are also in the mix.
