“Dirt Road to Lafayette”

Kenny Glenann directing film from James Kelman script

Recently, Yvette Landry had the opportunity to perform as a “busker” for Booker Prize-winning Scottish author James Kelman, and BAFTA-winning director Kenny Glenann as they filmed “Dirt Road to Lafayette.”

The script follows recently bereaved Scottish father Tom and his son Murdo, who make an emotional journey from the Scottish Highlands to the southern U.S. ¬†Whilst in America, Murdo heard Zydeco/Blues music for the first time. Although a talented musician, Murdo hasn’t planed music since the death of his mother, but everything changes when he meets retired Zydeco legend, Queen Monzee-ay and her family.

Stay tunes, as this film is certainly on path to the big screen!
