Christy & Jim on the Fais Do-Do Stage at JazzFest with the Savoy Saturday morning jam
The video below depicts Christy and Jim dancing in Hollywood, County Wicklow, Ireland to the music of Celjun, a band that plays a variety of genres including Cajun and Celtic. They were inspired by the historical location and fell in love with Tutty’s Pub in Hollywood. The pub, now under new management, was located near St. Kevin’s where the Music Under the Mountain Festival was being held. Jim and his friends annexed and symbolically brought a piece of Tutty’s from Ireland to the Whirlybird Honky Tonk in St. Landry Parish, Southwest Louisiana, USA, where Whirlybirders can experience the joys of life in both Southwest Louisiana and Ireland.
Christy and Jim traditionally join other dancers in Iowa, LA or Lake Charles, LA for the Boozoo Chavis Labor Day Festival. Here are clips from 2017. Always – the best and our favorite pair on the dancefloor, Jennifer DuPont & Zydeco Joe Citizen – Zydeco, Baby! Zydeco or die! Yeah you right!
Christy and Jim frequently engage in activities they enjoy. In the previous clip, Zydeco Joe Citizen is wearing an “Get Cook’n with Boozoo and Leona” apron, which is autographed. In the next clip, Jim can be seen wearing the same apron. Joe and Jim pay tribute to Mr. Boozoo Chavis, and the many years of unforgettable zydeco fun he provided, by wearing their “Get Cook’n” aprons.
