Free Concert Saturday

Cajun musician Amanda Shaw will open the 2021 NSU Folklife Concert Series Saturday, July 3 at 2 p.m. at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum at 800 Front Street in downtown Natchitoches.  The concert series is free and open to the public.

The Louisiana Folklife Center at Northwestern State University is sponsoring a series of six Saturday concerts in July and August.  The concerts will highlight different folk musical traditions with a 45-minute music set followed by interviews with the musicians and an audience Q&A. 

Music has been engrained into Shaw’s world for as long as she can remember. That exposure greatly paid off as the Louisiana-raised musician has carved out her place  in Cajun culture, and has become one of the most recognizable brands in Louisiana music.
