Bayou n' Brooklyn Cajun Music Festival May 11-13

This year's Bayou n' Brooklyn Cajun Music Festival starts tomorrow at Jalopy!

Take a visit to New Orleans without leaving Brooklyn, and bring your dancing shoes! Sounds of Cajun fiddles, and zydeco rubboards will fill the air for three days and nights of music and dance.

"Dancehall bands, workshops, Culture & Community Jam sessions, and Gumbo dinner (the real deal!) I'll be one big party,” says Jesse L├ęge, who's giving over his Gumbo recipe again on Saturday.
