Lagniappe Friday

It’s Friday!
This weekend I’m heading downriver to Norfolk, Virginia for the 18th Annual Bayou Boogaloo & Cajun Food Festival. It will be a weekend filled with Cajun and Zydeco music, crawfish, andouille, étouffée, and cold liquid refreshments along the waterfront.

Recently, I've taken to posting a bunch of music on Fridays. It's not something I consciously set out to do, but I kinda like it. Fridays on the Bus are special, so why shouldn’t we kick off the weekend with an extra helping of good music? Lagniappe Friday. Since the Old Blue Bus was my home in Louisiana for some good years, it’s only fitting that we kick this weekend off with some great music from Bayou Country.

It has been awhile since I’ve posted any music from Louisiana. Here are a few classic Cajun tunes and a jumpin’ number by Buckwheat Zydeco, who will be performing at the Bayou Boogaloo this weekend.

I have to be honest. I have a hard time just listening to Zydeco. I really wish I could appreciate it more. However, I if ever make it to the area, I'll be the biggest ahole in the crowd. This is music that rocks after a few beers and fine southern hospitality. AAHEEE!
