  n/a n/a 40th annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival  

The 40th annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival will be held on July 26-27, 2019 in air-conditioned Prather Coliseum on the Northwestern State University campus in Natchitoches, Louisiana.


The 2019 Festival theme “Vive la Louisiane!” celebrates the ways in which so many outstanding artists young and old are tapping into the power and artistry of the old ways, revitalizing and reimagining tradition as they make it their own. Louisiana’s folkways are not just of the past, but also of the present, and the voices of these artists emerge as a clarion call, reminding us of the vibrancy of traditional culture. These artists are today’s tradition bearers, and their impressive mastery of old forms made anew is a showcase of a living cultural legacy.

The folk music of the region, ranging from Cajun, Zydeco, bluegrass, country, blues, and gospel will be performed. Regional material culture crafts, such as beadwork, quilts, spinning and weaving, Native American baskets, Czech Pysanky eggs, and handmade banjos will be exhibited, along with day long demonstrations by the craft persons working on site.

Featured musicians will include blues artist Tab Benoit, Cajun artists the Bruce Daigrepont Cajun Band and the Cajun Tradition Band, country artists Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue, traditional Americana musicians the Rayo Brothers, and Creole la la musicians Goldman Thibodeaux and the Lawtell Playboys.

Winner! 2007 Performing Arts Award from the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence

From the author of the best-selling novel, The House of God, this critically acclaimed version which played Off Broadway in 2007, tells the amazing story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, and of their wives, who founded Al Anon.

During the roaring ’20s, New York stockbroker Bill Wilson rides high on money, fame, and booze. In ’29, both he and the market crash and he becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon in Akron, Ohio, and a pillar of the community, has been a secret drunk for thirty years, often going into the operating room hungover and high on sedatives. His family has tried everything to no avail. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill and Bob meet on Mother’s Day of 1935. The two men form a relationship which keeps each sober. Fired up, they seek out a third drunk to see if their program will work for others. Richly textured with the ragtime and jazz of the era, the play tells a magnificent American success story.
