Christy & Jim - thewhirlybird@gmail.com website: http://thewhirlybird.com

Jim Phillips and Christy Leichty are artists and educators who love music and South Louisiana culture so dearly that they moved to Louisiana to join their creative community to help rebuild and promote literacy after the 2005 hurricanes.  They bought an old Texaco distribution center/train depot, moved it to a secret location, and outfitted it as a honky tonk/dance hall/theater called The Whirlybird. Some of the biggest names in Creole, Cajun, Irish, Old Time - well - all genre of music - “pass a good time” there.  Just greasing the cultural wheels, Baby!
