If you like your country music with more old school tumbleweed and Texas twang than fast burning plastic of the modern stuff, then you should pick up Yvette Landry’s new solo CD Should Have Known.

Like some Cajun queen bee from another era, the Bonsoir, Catin bassist has been banging out solo shows, picking an acoustic guitar and belting out vintage country-inspired, original tunes that trace the arch of romance from holding hands to one night stands to making long term plans. Her songs are filled with bitter-sweet tales of love lost, found, and turned around. They’ll have you crying in your beers and jerking the tears off your shirt sleeves.

Over the years, Landry has toured the world as a multi-instrumentalist performing with the likes of BonSoir Catin, Balfa Toujours, Red Stick Ramblers, Pine Leaf Boys, Walter Mouton, Steve Riley, Dirk Powell,  Donna the Buffalo and many others. The Richard Sale Barn in Abbeville hosts a night with Yvette Landry singing old time country music on Feb. 19. It’s a smoke-free concert. Doors open at 6 p.m. Music at 7 p.m. It’s an intimate evening with a class act with limited seating of 100, so grab your tickets now by calling 893-5760.
