Acadiana songstress Marce Lacouture hosts a “Song Circle” workshop at Acadiana Center for the Arts this weekend. Louisiana Folk Roots presents the last of three workshops that honor the vocal traditions of some of Louisiana’s early cultures such as Native American, Spanish, French, African, Acadian, Creole, Cajun, German, and Isleño (Canary Islanders). Lacouture’s workshop welcomes singers of all levels and promises a fun time for all.
The “Song Circle” workshops take place on March 12, 3-5 p.m. at the Acadiana Center for the Arts (101 W. Vermilion, downtown Lafayette). The workshop is $15 and $10 for members of Friends of Louisiana Folk Roots and the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
