Bret Vidrine - 8PM
 
bret vidrine While not your typical commercial formula Country record, singer/Songwriter, Bret Vidrine delivers the country side of folk, on his debute album, Lonely For Love.

Produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Shelton Skerrett, this rich collection of "life songs" has a very warm sound, including incredible steel guitar and fiddle work, acoustic grand piano, organ, other keyboard sounds, groovin' bass and drums, and background vocals, all supporting Bret Vidrine's uniquely lyrical style of writing, singing and fingerpicking acoustic guitar. Just plain good, earthy music!

Feufollet w/ Terry and the Zydeco Bad Boys - 8PM

feufolletAlthough Feufollet has often been hailed as the future of Cajun music, a more current assessment must admit that they are now the present of Cajun music. Once idolized at at early age for their precocious musicianship and sent all over the world as youthful emblems of Acadiana's cultural resurgence, the members of Feufollet have, in the meantime, grown into the music as young adults. While Feufollet remains central to the neotraditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their latest album finds the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century.

Terry Domingue Accordion and vocals - Since the age of four Terry would stand at the foot of any stage mesmerized by the band playing at the local trail rides he would attend with his father. At age eight, this self-taught accordion player got his first accordion and has been playing since. Growing up around his grandparents Terry had no choice but to learn Creole French. To keep tradition alive he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs in French as well as writing many new ones of his own.

January 2008
The talented Beaumont-born singer has just released Holdin' Our Own and Other Country Gold Duets (Stag), a joint album with Austin's Brennen Leigh. Though it recalls a Nashville of yesteryear, it is comprised mostly new material. He also recently scored big as the creative force behind a fictional country band, Banjo and Sullivan, in Rob Zombie's film The Devil's Rejects.

PLAY. MUSIC. HEAL. Fundraiser

featuring Feufollet, Hungry Hungry w/ David Egan

feufollet Acting Up (in Acadiana) is the professional, multi-disciplined performing arts company in residence at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Now in its sixth year, the company remains committed to producing quality works with integrity, intelligence, and relevance, whether a premiere production or the reinterpretation of a classic.
PLAY. MUSIC. HEAL. is an original work in progress that the company wrote and developed with the input of other local writers, musicians, visual artists and a videographer. A workshop version was presented in March of 2009, where the company received valuable feedback and tremendous encouragement from their audiences. The fundraiser will allow the next stage of development to happen, including original composition by our contributing musicians and a layer of video to compliment the storyline.
PLAY. MUSIC. HEAL. combines a non-traditional script and staging with familiar Louisiana characters who live life with all of its complexities: poverty and wealth, love and marriage, illness and death, a new generation challenging and questioning family obligation and tradition, and music's ability to lift them up.
