Both workshops are presented by Louisiana Folk Roots and the Acadiana Center for the Arts and are for all levels of singing experience.

At the Saturday, March 24 workshop, Same Songs, Different Sounds, Lacouture compares English and French versions of the same traditional ballads.

At the Saturday, March 31 workshop Favorite Jam Songs, Breaux will teach some of the Cajun songs played at jam sessions.
