Nicholls State University, in Thibodaux, Louisiana, is putting on a free event, Tresors du Bayou, or Treasures of the Bayou.  It’s a combination crafts, cultural and music festival, a prelude to the not-free Louisiana Swamp Stomp Festival.  There will be storytellers, dance lessons, cooking demonstrations, and other cultural events.  It starts at 9:00 a.m. and culminates with a performance by Amanda Shaw and the Cute Guys at noon.   Thibodaux is about an hour and a quarter’s drive from New Orleans.  Go and stay for the festival!  Here’s Amanda with the very hot Dennis McGee tune Danse carre:
