Join us on Friday, February 17, from 6-8 p.m. for a Jazz Dinner featuring guitarist and songwriter Walter Pousson Jr. An honorary member of The Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame, Walter has been spreading the good word with soulful flair for more than four decades.
Born and baptized in Mermentau, a small village in the heart of Louisiana Cajun country, Walter Jr. grew up hearing traditional Cajun music at family gatherings. As he got older, his musical tastes expanded to include some of the region’s top blues artists, including Louisiana natives Bobby Charles, Slim Harpo and Clarence “Gatemouth" Brown.
In addition to his popular blues gigs, he also uses his music to help spread a spiritual message. A Certified Lay Minister in the UMC with a Master's degree from the Loyola Institute for Ministry in New Orleans, the musician presents original sacred concerts — which have been described as “relevant, reverent and scripturally grounded” with heartfelt passion and compassionate fellowship.
Walter Jr.’s relaxed style has been central to his work as music minister, worship leader, spiritual director, and retreat/seminar/conference leader.
Dinner will include Louisiana-inspired cuisine. Nursery provided!
