Let the Music Lead You (to the Cajun Coast)

Live Music on the Cajun Coast

When you think “Cajun” you automatically think food and music, and the Cajun Coast has its fill of both, but music takes the stage, literally this spring.

Not only is there so much live music on the Cajun Coast that a live music calendar is published each week, but the Bayou Songwriter’s Festival & Road to 3rd Street Songwriter’s Festival is back in April with 10 days of performances, competitions, events, workshops, and bayou fun with over 100 performers participating. Presenting sponsor, D.a.T. Sauce will also be showcasing the winners of their National Songwriting Competition. There are opportunities to rub elbows with top names as well as many public performances planned throughout the area. Come be a part of this fun and funky festival!

The Cypress Sawmill Festival will be the official location for the KQKI Country Music Showdown - America’s #1 Country Music Talent Search - to kick off the Songwriter’s Festival . See your favorite local talent compete and win! Then more music will round out the weekend, along with the songs of saws and cheers at lumberjack competitions and other activities, honoring the lumber industry, once a major part of the Patterson landscape.

With Morgan City, LA being the headquarters of the National Last Honky Tonk Music Series, the Cajun Coast gets its fair share of historic, roots music performances. Series performances are held throughout the nation, from small honky tonks to large outdoor arenas, with everything from solo acoustic performances to full band shows. Catch the live music calendar to find these performances throughout the area.

Music line-ups are anticipated by festival-goers, with much local talent to draw from.  Even quirky April events that honor boats, bears, and even porches, still count on great music to bring in the crowds! Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel also packs out its three venues with big names that draw in crowds from far and near! Rhythms on the River is a weekly music series that begins after Easter for 9 weeks, starting each weekend off right in downtown Morgan City. 

The weekly music calendar is packed with a variety of musical genres for all tastes, including the occasional “open mic night” if you want to bring your own! So check out the calendar and find a festival or venue for live music every weekend on the Cajun Coast!
