Taking in Zydeco Music in Opelousas Louisiana and More

Portals and KM

He passed in 2002. Opelousas is the home of zydeco music so it was a great treat to visit in December. Whenever I went to New Orleans I took in the Thursday zydeco nights at the Rock N Bowl and have gone to many zydeco shows elsewhere but had never gone to where it all started. 

Some Great Cajun and Zydeco Musicians

Portals and KM

I am getting ready to go the New Orleans, Lafayette, Breaux Bridge and few other towns in south west Louisiana to enjoy the food and music. To get in the mood I have been reflecting on the music of the Louisiana countryside. Nathan Williams, from Lafayette, Louisiana has given himself the nickname, "The Zydeco Hog.” According to his site he also loves to cook in his kitchen in Kinder, Louisiana. Zachary is from Louisiana and has recorded in English and French.
