This collection contains photos taken Aug. 31, 2019 at the Zydeco Breakfast in Opelousas, at the 37th annual Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival in Opelousas, and at the Creole Renaissance Festival in Rayne. I went to the Zydeco Breakfast to photograph Mike Broussard and Nu’ Edition Zydeko, returned to Eunice for my own diabetic-friendly brunch, went back to Opelousas to photograph Corey Ledet and His Zydeco Band and Nathan Williams and the Zydeco Cha Chas (including a tribute to Nathan Williams in which Governor John Bel Edwards gave one of the presentations), headed to Rayne to catch Dexter Ardoin and Rosie Ledet at the Creole Renaissance Festival organized by Keith Frank, and finally, navigating the twisting Highway 35 route to Lawtell and then back to Opelousas, photographed Lil Nathan & the Zydeco Big Timers before heading home to Eunice at about 7:30.
