Fat Tuesday! Food truck outside, music all night!

Full Schedule:

The Occasional Cajun Band plays a mix of traditional Cajun and Creole music. The band performs music found in the dance halls (and at the festivals) in southwest Louisiana including lively two-steps, soulful waltzes and get-down Zydeco. Musical influences include the Balfa Brothers, Amédé Ardoin, Bois Sec Ardoin, (and many members of the Ardoin family), Canray Fontenot, Preston Frank, Al Berard, and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys. The music is for celebrating, dancing and having fun. Band members Matt Turino (fiddle) and Rob Krumm (accordion) played locally in the Noisy Gators (2001-2004) and also toured nationally with Creole Stomp. Based in Urbana, the full band lineup also includes Sam Payne (guitar), Dave Pride (percussion), Charlie Harris (bass) and Cody Jensen (drums).

Folk Jam Circle @ Channing-Murray Foundation
Mar 19 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Folk Jam Circle is a participation-based, community-education focused musical project for people of all ages and stages of music experience.  Co-sponsored by CU Folk & Roots and the Channing Murray Foundation,  Folk Jam Circle will take place on Saturdays at the Channing Murray Foundation sanctuary from 7-10pm.  Come with a folk song for the circle to learn (guidelines for song-presenting are outlined below), and be ready for a fun and comfortable time exploring sound and relationship to song in a group setting.  Instruments of all kinds are welcome!

Song-sharing guidelines are as follows:

  • respectfully share your understanding of the cultural context of the song
  • share song origin and historical background
  • (optional) share your relationship with the song

COVID-19 protocol:

To ensure COVID-safety in an unmasked, group-singing, closely-seated environment, we are requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination AND a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event.  Proof of vaccination and a negative test result will be asked for at the door and are required for entry :-)

To be added to the Folk Jam Circle GroupMe group chat, voice questions or concerns, or RSVP, contact project organizers Ayla McDonald (ayla3mcdonald@gmail.com) and Sophie Kish.
