Saturday was a beautiful day for the annual Cajun Fest up in Celina TX. Blue skies, 80 degrees, great food and non stop Cajun music. I was shooting up there while the industrial scale boilers were dumping thousands of steaming crawfish into hoppers and on to plates for most of the day, alongside music from the 9 year old Bella Hermundson, the energetic Pine Leaf Boys, through Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys to 1 of only 2 Cajun bands to win a Grammy, the Band Courtbouillon and finishing up with the amazing Wayne Toups (also a grammy winner). Thanks to Zydeco Mike for his great primer on Zydeco music - he was there with the current host of the Cajun show on KNON 89.3, Jimbreaux.
All this alongside a car show, funnel cake, bounce houses, ice cones, hurricanes, wine, and plenty of beer (not necessarily in that order) made a great family day out, mark it in your calendars for next year. You can check out some of the images here
I'm shooting at the Celina Cajun Fest on March 28th. Music all day from the likes of The Pine Leaf Boys, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, the Band Courtbouillon and Wayne Toups, and all the crawfish you can eat. Come along and try it out!
