    Rendez-vous des Cajuns

    Bring your dancing shoes to the Liberty Theatre's "Rendez-vous des Cajuns," a live radio show in the Grand Old Opry/Louisiana Hayride/Prairie Home Companion format. The show takes place every Saturday in Eunice, home to some of Louisiana's most popular Cajun music artists and the Cajun French Music Hall of Fame Museum. In fact, the show's emcee will even host each program in Cajun French with just enough English spoken, so that everyone can enjoy the history and stories behind the music and lyrics. Today's Cajun and Creole artists have their own original music but many also continue to play the traditional French songs they grew up hearing from fiddle and accordion masters. This event is a "must see" for Louisiana music fans.

    April 14 - Jay Cormier & Cajun Born

    Savoy Music Center Jam Session

    The Savoy Music Center Jam Session is a special Saturday morning tradition hosted at the Savoy Music Center, home of the master accordion craftsman, Marc Savoy. Marc Savoy's Cajun Jam Session has created such a buzz over the years that the three-hour event has gotten the attention of major media outlets such as Good Morning America, National Geographic, and Smithsonian Magazine. The jam has also attracted visitors from all over the world who are fascinated by Cajun music, and eager to meet the musicians. The jam's notoriety partly has to do with Marc Savoy's jam session etiquette. The jam is not a place for the younger artists to "show-off" but instead to be led by the older generation of Cajun music fiddlers and accordionists. It's not a talent show, but instead a cultural exchange of stories, tunes, tips, and few laughs. 

    Don't know how to play? That's just fine. Chairs are set up for the audience to sit and listen or get up and dance!
