Louisiana Travel : Celtic Culture Day @ Vermilionville

Celtic Culture Day @ Vermilionville
Lafayette, Louisiana

On Saturday, visit the Lafayette Cajun Village known as Vermilionville for a day of Cajun Celtic music.  Celtic music  has evolved from the folk musical traditions of the Celtic people of Western Europe and this Celtic style has had a profound impact on our Cajun music.

The Cajun-Celtic band, Farouche, featuring Michael Barney, will play from 11 am to 1 pm.  Former Riverdance member, Sheila Ryan-Davoren, will teach dance lessons at 1:30 pm.  The Ryan’s School of Irish Dance will perform at 2 pm.  There will be cooking demonstrations throughout the day.  An Irish buffet is available for purchase.
