It may be the beginning of summer and the temperature may indeed by heating up–but we would like to help you really heat things up later this year.
This November, we are going to host a serious Cajun House Party here at Fort Worden. We're calling it Le Bal De Maison: A Cajun House Party at Fort Worden.
November 12-15, we want you and your friends to spend a long weekend with us soaking up Cajun culture, music, food and dance with some of the most interesting people currently making noise in Southwest Louisiana.
The Lafayette region boasts THE most vibrant musical scene in the United States right now, with old music, new music, and seriously talented musicians, young and old, playing both. The region in recent years has produced young bands such as Feufollet, the Red Stick Ramblers, Hungry Hungry, the Pine Leaf Boys, Cedric Watson and Bijoux Creole, and The Lafayette Rhythm Devils.
In the heart of it is BonSoir, Catin, and this terrific band – along with guest Courtney Granger – will be your hosts and inspiration for the House Party.
We'll be teaching music, of course, but we'll also be spending serious time on Cajun dancing, cooking, and singing. To learn more and to register, visit our Cajun House Party page.
