A night of pickin' at Louisiana Crossroads

by R. Reese Fuller

Whether you're looking to pick up on some guitar-playing pointers or just listen to an evening of acoustic guitar music, check out this evening's Louisiana Crossroads show.

At 5:30 p.m., Scott Fore (pictured) will present an hour-long advanced guitar workshop, in conjunction with Louisiana Folk Roots. (Advance tickets are $8, and participants are encouraged to bring their guitars). Fore is a former Lafayette resident and an internationally recognized acoustic guitarist, including the 2002 National Flatpicking Champion and the 2002 Doc Watson Flatpicking Champion, in addition to a number of other honors. Then at 7 p.m., Fore will join David Doucet, the Grammy-Award wining guitarist for BeauSoleil, for a performance. Advance tickets are $10. For more information, visit www.LouisianaCrossroads.org .
