Yvette Landry was one of several Louisiana musicians recognized and presented a trophy by Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne for her work as a Musical Ambassador to Louisiana. The year long program sponsored by Louisiana Office of Tourism selected several Louisiana musicians to act as ambassadors as they traveled throughout the country educating the masses about Louisiana music and culture.
Yvette Landry Band will be performing at the 45th anniversary of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. It is one of the more sprawling music festivals around. Like Coachella and Austin City Limits, it spans two weekends, but unlike those fests, the lineup doesn’t just repeat itself — all seven days of festivities feature a unique lineup. Headliners include Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Eric Clapton, Phish, and Christina Aguilera, but there’s also Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Public Enemy, and Charlie Wilson.
