Brooklyn’s Only Cajun, Creole, Zydeco Festival Seeks Funding Support from Indiegogo to Make Festival 2013 Happen.
This May, one will only need to be in Brooklyn to celebrate Bayou-born sounds often sought with much joie de vivre. Here, there is a chance to learn a new song; refine a dance step or fiddle tune; hear award winning bands play; play at a Community Jam session; or enjoy a Cajun-made authentic Jambalaya. Jalopy Tavern nurant - three day event- some attendees might get concerned about the isolated locale – thinking they’d need to know about meal options – tell them all they need including food is right there!
2013 Bayou n’ Brooklyn Music Festival will welcome cultural ambassadors Christine Balfa, Cajun music’s most talented and revered vocalists and guitar players: Ed Poullard, accordion builder and Creole fiddler who still carries the tradition of the late Canray Fontenot, and Bebe Carriere; and Megan Brown, singer from Tepetate, LA.
This three day music festival takes place on May 10, 11, and 12 at Jalopy Theatre and School of Music set on 315 Columbia Street (between Hamilton and Woodhull) Brooklyn, NY 11231 USA. Click here for Directions
Our team of organizers consisting of Deborah Monlux, Jesse Lege, Diane De Chillo, Jen Obert, Vera Hoar, Nicole Fahey, Eric P. Richardson, Jim R. Moore, Karen Duffy, Lynette Wiley, Geoff Wiley and the Jalopy Theatre and School of Music staff are looking to raise $1850 to make this festival happen.
The funds raised will exclusively go to the guest musicians: The organizers will fly three top Louisiana musicians who rarely make appearances in NY. This is the ONLY Cajun-Creole-Zydeco festival in Brooklyn and everybody can help keep this annual event alive.
