The Kennedy Center Open House and Chalk Festival

The Kennedy Center Open House and Chalk Festival where invited artists create chalk drawings. They will be featuring the Gulf Coast artists this year, check out the great line up. Click link above.

"From gospel, zydeco, and New Orleans jazz to folkabilly, funk, and Delta blues, the five states lining the Gulf Coast are bursting with rich regional traditions. On the stages during the festival, you can catch performers whose roots took hold in towns, cities, bayous, and parishes along fabled U.S. Route 90, also known as the Gulf Coast Highway. This roadway remains key to the area's colorful identity, enabling artists to travel, share, and mix their styles into a savory cultural gumbo"
