Whoa, this is history from a few years back… The video below is Christy and Jim dancing in Hollywood, County Wicklow, Ireland to the esoteric musical group – Celjun – who play musical genre from Cajun to Celtic and everything in between. Christy and Jim, were inspired by this historical Celtic place, and fell in love with the pub, Tutty’s of Hollywood (see photo), which is now under new management from that period of. history. Tutty’s was just down the hill from the 17th Century de-commissioned church where we were dancing for the Music Under the Mountain Festival. Without any help or hindrance from government officials, Jim & friends annexed a piece of Tutty’s, Hollywood, County Wicklow, Ireland and installed that annexed piece of culture into the beloved Whirlybird Honky Tonk, St Landry Parish, Southwest Louisiana, USA. Here, you will experience the joie de vivre of Southwest Louisiana and The Irish in Tutty’s Annex – yeah, you right.
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 do what they love as often as possible. Notice that in the previous clip Zydeco Joe Citizen is wearing a “Get Cook’n with Boozoo and Leona” autographed apron – and in this next clip Jim is wearing it. Joe and Jim honor Mr. Boozoo Chavis, and the many years of “beyond-description zydeco fun” he provided, by wearing their ‘Get Cook’n’ aprons.
