Confetti Park is coming to Arnaudville this weekend! On June 18 and 19, Confetti Park host Katy Hobgood Ray will be at the NuNu Arts & Culture Collective. While in the area, Katy seeks to record musicians, storytellers, folklorists and others, including talented young children. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the schedule.
The Confetti Park radio program and podcast features children’s music and stories from Louisiana. Recorded music, field recordings, in-studio performances and interviews with musicians, authors, folklorists and other cultural representatives from across Louisiana are incorporated.
Katy curates commercial recordings as well as personal songs that well-known musicians may have created for their own kids, as well as small projects from after-school programs, churches and community groups. Each show is sprinkled with field recordings and childhood music memories of Louisiana musicians, as well as occasional bits of Louisiana folklore.
Confetti Park is currently broadcast on community radio stations in New Orleans (WHIV 102.3 FM) and Hammond (KSLU 90.0FM) and is being offered to other community radio stations around Louisiana for free. It will soon be will distributed internationally through PRX. Segments of the show are available in a free podcast on iTunes at http://bitly.com/confettiparkpodcast.
Katy and her family will also be at the Friday night potluck social at the NuNu. They are very excited!
