country music and the south?

I have to do a presentation for a class about southern culture.

I chose "How country music has inpacted the southern US states [Louisiana, Texas, Florida, ect.]"

Can you guy give me any ideas of songs to present, or maybe even a description? I’m talking real country by the way, maybe something like Johnny Cash’s generation of country music.

Don’t worry, I’m not asking you to write me a whole paper.
Maybe just a couple brief points?

It’d really help me out a alot :)

I respect all genres of music. Country western music was derived from blue grass music. PBS had documentaries on this. Classic country is the music from Johnny Cash’s generation. Best wishes! :)

What’s that music/YouTube video?

There’s this music video that starts out in Louisiana i think and goes in various places around the world? It’s a rather old song and it’s done by one guy recording the overlapping singing/playing of various instruments.

Places the guy goes: liousana, navajo reservation, France, sand Amsterdam.

"Burn the House Down" by Harry Blanchet it sounds like to me.

The Magic of Orlando Extends Beyond Disneyworld

Orlando, Florida, is a popular choice for parents who want to take their kids on a short break this April. After all, Disneyworld – the world’s favourite children’s theme park – is located there and thus provides an excellent place to let your children run amok! However, next time you’re in Orlando for some family fun, try and look beyond Disneyworld as April in Orlando could hold some very interesting surprises!

One of the most high profile events in Orlando’s April Calendar is the Central Florida Fair. Running since 1912, the Central Florida Fair offers food, exhibits, music, rides and entertainment for the entire family – so if Mickey ever gets a little too much, your kids will get to enjoy something non-Disney related in Orlando. The 2007 Central Florida Fair boasts a variety of attractions, including Kenya Safari Acrobats, the Sunburst Beauty Pageant & Baby Contest (open to girls and women aged 4 to 27 years) and the Frisco Brothers Exotic Annual Exhibit & Show, which is back for a remarkable eighth year running.

If you’re looking for some active fun in Orlando this spring, why not take your kids down to the Soap Box Derby Rally. Whether you’re a first time driver or an experienced soap box racer, make sure you seize this chance! Race cars will be available to drivers at the rally free of charge; and each driver will be able to make several test runs down the track to see if the Soap Box Derby Rally floats your boat. And since the Soap Box Derby Rally is restricted to drivers aged 7 to 16, you know your kids will be safe and have fun with other children their own age.

Finally, one of Orlando’s most exciting festivals held in April is the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival. This exciting festival has been an annual fixture in Orlando’s calendar since 1989 and brings the smells, sounds and tastes of the famous Louisiana Cajun Country to Florida. With sizzling Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco music, a relaxed atmosphere and first-class Louisiana cuisine, you and your family are sure to have a wonderful time at the Rajuncajun Crawfish festival! Whether it’s bluegrass, fiddle or classic rock music you love, the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival will offer you all this and more, accompanied by a Cajun buffet that includes double dipped black bayou fried chicken, corn on the cob, shrimp head-on Louisiana style, red creamer potatoes and more besides.

If you’re planning on a family holiday to Orlando in April, why not opt for a hotel suite for a more cosy family accommodation experience. You’ll find plenty of hotels and hotel suites in Orlando at your disposal, so you and your family will be able to enjoy the magic of Orlando in peace and comfort – whether you choose to spend it in Disneyworld or not!

Are there any music stores in New Orleans that sell handmade cajun accordions?

I know there are shops outside the city in smaller towns in Louisiana. But are there any musical instrument stores in the central city area that carry them?

I found this site using Google:

This site lists builders of cajun accordions

College problem what do I do?

I am currently a freshman music major at Louisiana Lafayette and I absolutely hate it. I am either going to drop out or maybe stay until the end of the semester although I don’t want to. I am considering options like Berklee College of music or just moving somewhere and working and starting a band while completing an online degree in something besides music. I can’t figure out what I should do. What do you think?

My best recommendation would be to make sure you have all the info you need before you make a final decision. Berklee is a great school and will undoubtedly provide a different experience than your current school. But that doesn’t mean it will be a great fit either.

If you do choose to go the online route I would recommend contacting a number of schools so you can find the best fit for you and your needs (tuition, schedule, career opportunities, etc.) and weigh that against Berklee. This site has some good information on online degrees in a variety of specialties and some colleges to help begin/expand your search if you go that route:

Good Luck!
