Yvette Landry Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage
Breaux Bridge native Yvette Landry focuses on traditional storytelling in her approach to music. Having played a variety of instruments in Cajun bands, Yvette now fronts her own band with strong Cajun influences and a traditional approach to country music. Landry’s 2010 debut album Should Have Known featured prominent Cajun fiddling and dance tracks that highlighted her classic country vocals. She followed with 2013’s No Man’s Land and, a year later, Me & T-Coe’s Country, which featured original songs and covers of classic country songs such as Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.”
You just never know who’s gonna show up for Yvette’s gig on a Thursday night at Buck & Johnny’s in Breaux Bridge, LA. Last night, Yvette was joined by world-class musicians Beau Thomas and Sonny Landreth. Here’s a little something if you missed it…and don’t forget…you can catch Yvette Landry at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Saturday, April 30th!
It’s a busy time of year – festivals, local gigs, traveling gigs, music camps – a perfect time to get out and listen to some live music. Here’s a little something to hold you over until you get to where you’re going…
