The New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian phenomenon is part music, part heritage, part ancestry, part revelry, part fashion, and oft misunderstood.  Chief Monk Boudreaux is one of the most famous and enduring leaders of that culture and head of the Golden Eagle Mardi Gras Indian tribe.  Music has also become a vehicle for raising awareness of the plight of coastal erosion.  Boudreaux joined forces with blues guitarist and singer/songwriter Tab Benoit and an all-star band of musicians in the project “Voice of the Wetlands.” The group recorded and performed songs aimed at raising awareness of this issue that is central to the viability of the region.
See them both at the Covington Trailhead this Thursday for the final Rockin’ the Rails of the season.  Brought to you by the City of Covington, Rockin’ the Rails is a free concert series open to the public.  Food and drinks are available for purchase.  Visit
