ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Pointe Noir finds its rhythm deeply seated in Southwest Louisiana, where many of its members have studied and learned Cajun music. Katie Trautz is a seasoned fiddle player, who drifted south to the Bayou after many years of playing Old-time music. Chris Hollis, the Montpelier-based old-time guitar player, also found an interest in Cajun music, and together he and Katie traveled to Louisiana to learn the musical traditions there. Cannon Labrie is a long-time Cajun and Zydeco accordion player, playing with well-known New England bands Yankee Chank, Jeannie and the High Tops and Planet Zydeco. Walker Blackwell is a percussionist and fine art printmaker who has been surrounded by cajun music his entire life and has been performing percussion in several local bands - including the Clayfoot Strutters - on and off since he was 4 years old. Christiana Athena- Blackwell is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator. She started singing and drumming in bands in Vermont when she was 14 years old, and continued her performing career for the past 2 decades. Pointe Noir plays an uplifting combination of exciting dance music, country songs, and Cajun tunes from Lafayette and beyond.

The Plainfield Town Hall Opera House is a modest-sized, affordable venue, with a capacity of 240 people (including a balcony that holds 45).

It is available to host all kinds of events – opera, theater, lectures, dances, movies, weddings, meetings, and other special events. It is valued for its excellent acoustic qualities and for the ambiance created by its high, tin-clad ceilings and walls, its hardwood floor, tall sash windows, proscenium stage, and red velvet curtains.

The building is owned and maintained by the town of Plainfield and is managed by the non-profit “Friends of the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House” (FTHOH), an organization of volunteers dedicated to keeping the arts and community alive and thriving in Plainfield and the surrounding region.
