The year we hit the million-dollar mark, just before Atchafalaya reunited onstage. Poster by Megan BarraNumerous individual and corporate contributions have combined with concert, special event and auction proceeds as well as commemorative CD, poster and T-shirt sales to push the Comeaux Fund across its initial million-dollar goal line.

Monies raised as part of this campaign are eligible for generous matching funds, and interest generated by the endowment will be used to pay the salaries of accomplished figures in traditional music and the costs of the programs they will spearhead.

Together, we will continue to expand the scope and reach of this ambitious and significant undertaking.
