As a part of our fundraising campaign for the 2021 GiveNOLA season, we have partnered with the Louisiana Landmarks Society to present the inaugural Sunday Guinguette at Pitot House!

This event will feature live music by Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes. Sunpie plays what he calls Afro-Louisiana music, a style incorporating blues, zydeco, gospel, Caribbean and African influenced rhythms and melodies. He is a multi-instrumentalist, master accordion and harmonica player, also piano, rubboard, talking drum, and dejembe. He learned accordion from some of the best Zydeco pioneers in Louisiana, including Fernest Arceneaux, John Delafose, and Clayton Sampy. Along with his musical group Sunpie and the Louisiana Sunspots, he has performed at festivals and concerts across the US and around the globe.

Crêpes and drinks will be available for purchase from Santa Fe and the French-American Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds from this event will benefit both New Orleans Photo Alliance and the Louisiana Landmarks Society. Click here to reserve tickets!
