Once again our brother Bill puts zydeco on the grid; us & CJ Chenier this year. Bill values our music and our contributions to music history in this country. He places us equally, alongside all the other great American blues, roots, folk & Americana artists. His template was once way more common-we know, we’ve done 1000’s of festivals over the years- there was once more festivals exposing their audiences to other genres-blues & roots music, jazz, Hispanic, Native American, Hawaiian artists whose history and culture have helped shape our cultural identity. However, we do see that our performing arts theatres, universities and K-12 arts programming around the country are making diversity (racial, genre, gender) & multiculturalism even more of a priority. True story y’all! Cheers to those who value diversity in all its forms.
