SwampFest Takes Audubon Zoo Down Da Bayou
The neatly coiffed bayou-esque environs of Audubon Park may have started as a playground for the rich. But now the Park and zoo are open to all, so no one thinks twice about getting a little rough around the edges a few times a year. One such occassion is Swamp Fest, which imports talent from the Cajun heartland to the Audubon Zoo, and shows off the captive creatures you're likely to find there, without even having to board a fan boat and don a macho persona.
Today's Events: 8.19.11

JazzFest Focus: Pine Leaf Boys
Playing a rare form of music that originated in a culture that some say is dying, practitioners of traditional Cajun start with a long way to go to climb out of obscurity. But, as Michael Doucet and Beausoleil showed a generation ago, mixing a fluid presentation of the songs with a bit of preaching about saving the music (and, yes, taking more than a few photos in the swampss) can go a long way toward digging out of that initial hole. The Pine Leaf Boys, and especially leader Wilson Savoy, have taken up Doucet's mantle. With the Lafayette ensemble's relative youth, they may have even raised him one.
