General admission and reserved seating for the following dates are currently available:

September 22: Sean Hobbes + The Hi Res – Sean Hobbes’ songs are stories and reflections on love, loss, and wanting something more. His band, The Hi Res, bring a wide spectrum of influence and style to his songs, pushing the boundaries of pop music. Together, they create fun, dynamic performances that effortlessly leap from jazz and soul to indie rock and pop.

October 13: Beth Patterson Foremost a player of the eight-stringed Irish bouzouki, Lafayette native Beth Patterson brings a mixture of Celtic, Cajun, and original songs to the table. Beth has performed across five continents, incorporating tidbits of music and lore she often picks up from the people she’s met along the way. Locals are likely to remember her from her pre-Katrina days playing at O’Flaherty’s Irish Pub, an era that spanned for over a decade. Her performances are energetic, often laced with humor and the occasional anecdote. There’s plenty of room to dance at Longue Vue, so don’t be shy!

October 27: Electric Yat String Quartet – Based in New Orleans, Electric Yat String Quartet is bringing music outdoors and online: Classical, Jazz, and Pop!
