THIRD SUNDAY CONCERT MAY 21

The next concert in the Third Sunday Concert Series at Christ Episcopal Church in Covington will be a performance by Cajun musician Bruce Daigrepont. Concert date is Sunday, May 21, 2017. The program begins at 5. Doors open at 4:30.

Bruce combines traditional standards with his original compositions. He is committed to writing songs in French only and his CD/DVDs have French names such as "Bienvenue Dans le Sud de la Louisiane," "Coeur des Cajuns," and "Jamais de la Vie." Unlike many Cajun bandleaders, Bruce sings and plays accordion simultaneously and treats the accordion like a rhythm instrument.

He has toured internationally, including French speaking Canada where he has quite a following. Locally he has been a regular at many venues including Maple Leaf, Tipitina's, Rock 'n' Bowl, Tropical Isle Bayou Club, and the Jazz Fest.

The Third Sunday concert is free, open to the public, and followed by a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception where the audience may meet the performers. Christ Church is located at 120 S. New Hampshire in Covington at the entrance to Bogue Falaya Park.
