Brooklyn, NY ( April 14, 2015 - With April almost behind us, the time is drawing near for the return of the Bayou 'n Brooklyn music festival. This popular event is back for its fifth year, and will be bringing a bevy of live Creole, Zydeco, and Cajun music to Jalopy Theater. Ticket holders will enjoy three days of dancing, music workshops, and authentic Cajun food (with ingredients flown in directly from Louisiana.)

Return guests will be expecting top-notch headliners, and the 2015 engagement is poised to deliver. Grammy nominee Yvette Landry will be showcasing her voice - which according to Bill Bently "can get grown men into trouble." Gina Forsyth, a New Orleans-based singer songwriter is scheduled as well, and her reputation as one of the best Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana is sure to please. Cajun musician Jesse Lege rounds out the top-billings as Bayou 'n Brooklyn's official ambassador of Lousiana music and culture.

The whole shendig is set to kick off with dance hall music at Jalopy Theater on May 8th (8:30PM). Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased by visiting the festival's official website.
