Carrying on the musical tradition of his father – Clifton Chenier, the late great King of Zydeco – accordionist C.J. Chenier and his Red Hot Louisiana Band kicked off the annual Wednesday night concert series in Lake George’s Shepard Park last week.
And they were a most appropriate opener, too, because the free weekly concert series, sponsored by the Lake George Arts Project, features a cornucopia of Louisiana musical talent this summer – including honky-tonkin’ pianist Marcia Ball (Wednesday, July 8), Cajun favorites Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys (August 5) and the rollickin’ season closer Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience.
The free concerts begin at 7:30pm each Wednesday throughout the summer. GO HERE for a complete schedule… and let the good times roll!
