Negotiating Difference in French Louisiana Music

Sara Le Menestrel

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter illustrates the decisive role of outsider interest and mobility in the development, evolution, and reconfiguration of French Louisiana music. Beginning with professionals, collectors, and fans in the 1960s and 1970s, particularly in Northern California, the chapter describes how the development of a network of fans eventually laid the foundations for a migratory wave of transplants to Louisiana that began in earnest in the early 2000s. By examining the intersecting itineraries of some of these “transplants,” the chapter portrays the changes in status and new hierarchies created within the music and among musicians. It also describes relational networks and the ways in which they overlap and extend. The process by which the mobility of French Louisiana music contributes to its reconfiguration is the focus of this chapter.
