The Louisiana Swamp Stomp Festival is set for March 12-14, 2010. Performers include Geno Delafose, the Lost Bayou Ramblers, and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys. You can’t go wrong with a lineup like that! Admission is $10 per day or $25 for the weekend. The festival is sponsored by Nicholls State University, located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, about an hour’s drive from New Orleans. You can also hear local swamp pop artists like Don Rich. Food and crafts are also on site. And thanks to the tireless Anke Tonn for organizing this (and other) wonderful events! Good practice for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and not so hot!
