Last weekend marked the close of our Zydeco Crossroads project with a two-night concert featuring live performances, the premiere of Robert Mugge’s Zydeco Crossroads: A Tale of Two Cities documentary and a panel discussion on zydeco’s role in American culture.
The event kicked-off on Friday with Ruben Moreno and Zydeco Re-Evolution and Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band, two perfect examples of how contemporary zydeco bands are blending the Southwest Louisiana and East Texas traditions with modern trends.
Listen to the full performances from both bands below while checking out some great photos taken by Matthew Shaver.
