Musician and author Johnette Downing and three-time Grammy® winner Scott Billington are the foremost children’s music performers from New Orleans (and part-time residents of Massachusetts). Their Swamp Romp program is a Louisiana dance party that brings the sounds of Cajun music, zydeco, traditional jazz, Isleño culture, swamp pop and New Orleans rhythm and blues to life for young ears. It is a toe-tapping, interactive, and authentic roots music experience that both children and parents will enjoy and long remember. Johnette’s gift for communicating with children is matched with smart musicianship and songs that make this tour of Louisiana’s rich cultural landscape fun for all in attendance.
