Lunchtime Lagniappe: Where Has All the Music Gone?: Lost Juke Joints of Natchitoches

Friday, July 29, 12:15-12:45pm

Jason Church will talk about the NCPTT and the Cane River Heritage Area’s project to locate the dance halls and juke joints that were once in Natchitoches Parish. This talk will show the documentation, oral histories, and mapping that NCPTT has produced in finding these lost cultural sites.

To complete this research, the team is looking for your help. Do you have old photographs of a dance hall, juke joint, or bar that played live music? Did you own, play music, or work at one of these places? If so, the researchers would love to talk with you about your experience. If you have any information, please contact Jason Church at 318-356-7444 or

Visitors are welcome to bring their lunch and eat during the presentation.
