Savoy Music Jam
January 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Savoy Music Center Jam Session in Eunice, Louisiana 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. It 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!
