The Louisiana Crossroads series continues as The City of Lake Charles presents Joel Savoy's Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round & Special Guests Wednesday, January 30 at 7:00 PM. at Central School Theater, 809 Kirby Street. No doubt, Joel Savoy was born into a dynasty of Cajun Music, steeped in tradition. Like others he began to explore what lies beyond the swamps and prairies and brought it back home – from bluegrass to swing and country. This project brings it all together: an All-Star band - led by Savoy, with fiddler extraordinaire David Greely, Red Stick Ramblers veteran Glenn Fields and Austin pedal steel phenom Rose Sinclair – will collaborate with very special guests for what is best described as Hot & Spicy Vintage Country! This incredible project celebrates the strong influence Texas swing and old-time country had on the South Louisiana music during the 40’s and 50’s.



Advance tickets for the Lake Charles shows are $10 and can be purchased at the Arts and Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana on the second floor of Central School or on line at Tickets at the door will be $12.
