Where's Dick Faurot When You Need Him?

Fresh off the worst "snow day" ever, here comes the second weekend without football, or Mardi Gras. I'm holding up pretty well. The prospect of the price of crawfish coming down, and the first trip of the season to Richard's Seafood Patio in Abbeville, is all I need right now. That, and some good music around town.

Vermilionville Performance Center, Lafayette 8 p.m. Friday, is the time and the place to see and hear Theresa Andersson. As the video below shows, she's cute as a button, and very, very talented. She's always been a great violinist, and singer/songwriter, but recently she's taken her talents to another level by employing looper pedals, and YouTube. How many of us go to our jobs day in day out, doing the exact same thing? Nothing wrong with that. Pays the bills, puts food on the table. But how many of us have the courage to re-invent our career 20+ years into it? That's what Andersson has done, and that's awesome.

Keewend artsts own!
