Southwestern Lousisiana is a treasure chest of American roots music.  One of the gems is Richard's.  Located on the highway a short distance from Lafayette in Lawtell, Richard's is a road house that features some of the best zydeco music in the region.  Things don't start heating up until after 10:30.   The music is lively and you will feel very welcomed by everyone, even if you are tourists.  Don't miss Richard's if you are in the area!
