Sometimes in life, stars align and magical things happen. Such is the case with Yvette recording on Darrell’s “Down to the River” song which was recently released on Scott’s new album Couchville Sessions. Yvette received a call from Darrell looking for someone to play the “Tit-Fer” (Cajun triangle) for one song. Not only was she able to do just that, she also had the honor of putting harmonies behind Darrel’s vocals. Check out the video, buy the album – and come see Darrell and Yvette perform June 22, 2016 at the Red Dragon Listening Room in Baton Rouge. It’s a show you won’t want to miss!
Yvette is thrilled to be returning to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Fais Do Do stage, Saturday, April 30th. Here’s what The Gambit of New Orleans has to say…

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…
