Move the furniture and roll up the rug, it’s time to romp in the swamp and boogie on the bayou. Johnette and Scott’s Swamp Romp concert is a rollicking ride through Louisiana roots music from Cajun, zydeco, traditional jazz, Isleño, swamp pop and New Orleans rhythm and blues. Children and families are immersed in Louisiana culture, traditions, cuisine and dance through interactive songs about Mardi Gras king cakes, New Orleans po’ boy sandwiches, the Bamboula rhythm, Isleño oxcarts, and how to spell Mississippi River. Simple words in French and Spanish are introduced, with translations.

Available online as a pre recorded video for remote learning.
