These artists will be in the Lake Area performing live in different venues to celebrate the Mardi Gras season. Here is your complete lineup of where your favorite artists will be playing.
Zydeco music has come a long way in the last century, and who knows where it will go in the next 100 years. But one thing will always remain the same, according to Grammy winner Chubby Carrier -- if you want to make a mark on music, you can't copy other people. You have to remain true to yourself.
Before Zydeco artists were getting feet moving in clubs worldwide, it was largely an in-home phenomenon. For a young Chubby Carrier, it was nothing for his family to empty a room and turn it into a dance floor.
The word "Zydeco" only goes back 50 years or so, but the roots of the music are ancient. How can one style of music have roots in Germany, France, Italy, the Caribbean and America all at the same time? Chubby Carrier explains.
For Chubby Carrier, winning a Grammy Award was the culmination of a life-long dream -- not only for himself, but for the generations of musicians that preceded him. But it was bittersweet, because his Grammy win also came the same year his parents passed away.
