“Cajun Fest is a family experience featuring delicious food, wonderful entertainment, and vendors, with talented artists and crafters at many booths, free Mardi Gras beads, and more,” shares Jana Jae. “At last – everyone is ready for live music again, and I’ll have my ‘magic blue Hee Haw fiddle’ ready to celebrate Cajun-style!!”

About Jana Jae:
Whether Jana Jae is taking part in a bravura performance of Bach’s Double Concerto For Two Violins or bringing a country fair crowd to its feet with a sizzling rendition of “Orange Blossom Special,” she’s the kind of performer that people don’t forget.
Jana Jae taught music during her early career until she felt inspired to take her unique blend of music on the road. Jana, and her trademark ‘Magic Blue Fiddle,’ soon took the world of country music by storm. Buck Owens was one of the first big names to recognize her talent and hired her as the first female member of his “Buckaroos” band, and she was part of the regular team of performers on the popular television show, ‘Hee Haw.’ She won national kudos as an acclaimed fiddler and has appeared with country greats such as Buck Owens, Roy Clark, Chet Atkins, the Oak Ridge Boys, and Ricky Skaggs.
