Swamp Romp: Louisiana Roots Music for Families

Education Program with Johnette Downing & Scott Billington

This program is best suited for 5K - 3rd grade children.

With songs about a Cajun girl who saves her grandfather from an alligator, the ox-carts that brought produce grown by Isleño farmers to the New Orleans French Market, and the joys of a New Orleans Po'Boy sandwich, Johnette and Scott's Swamp Romp program is a rollicking ride through the swamps, prairies and tree-lined city avenues of Louisiana. 

The sounds of Cajun music, zydeco, traditional jazz, Isleño culture, swamp pop and New Orleans rhythm and blues are offered in each show, with plenty of opportunities for kids to move, dance and sing along.  Simple words in French and Spanish are introduced, with translations.  And don't be surprised to see parents dancing along with their children!
