CARTER GREEN . . .This concert was part of the autumn art ala carte series.  It was the fourth concert.  The third concert featured Joseph Vincelli.

This was a very entertaining lunch break.  I really enjoy Zydeco music and especially if it is mixed in with other types of music.  So this mix of Zydeco and Cajun influences was really something.  Carter played the guitar and fiddle.  He sang in French and Cajun, and English, of course.  He explained about the customs of the Louisana Cajuns.  He also explained about the groups name and how a "mudbug" in Cajun territory is also known as a crawfish.  Not only did I get to hear some great music but I learned about the culture of the Cajuns in the Deep South.

All in all it was a wonderful break from work during the lunch hour.  I really enjoyed the show.  The MudBugs as a group are playing on Saturday for the Smoky Hill Museum's Street Fair.  The entire band will be there with their complete Zydeco band.  This event is not to be missed!  The Street Fair is always a blast and hearing the MudBugs band will be a big plus.

The lunch break concert was not without its memorable moment.  On the last song, Carter had just begun to play when his guitar string broke.  He laughed it off and said "Well, I guess we're done".
