The 11th annual Voice of the Wetlands Festival in October will exclusively feature Louisiana talent. “This year’s theme is all about native Louisiana sounds — zydeco, Cajun, Creole, jazz. All those genres come together and will play on two stages,” festival volunteer Jill Kettles said. Voice of the Wetlands organizers “wanted to celebrate the Louisiana culture, native sounds and the artists who came from them and bring them all together.” The free festival is expected to draw thousands of people from Oct. 10-12 to Southdown Plantation, 1208 Museum Drive, Houma, to enjoy local musicians such as festival founder Tab Benoit, Royal Southern Brotherhood and Chubby Carrier & The Bayou Swamp Band, Kettles said. There also will be food and artwork. For more information on the Festival, click here.
