About The Swamp Lilies

The Swamp Lilies are a New Orleans roots music stringband that will knock your socks off with their old-time Appalachian fiddle tunes, Cajun waltzes, and murder ballads.

The brainchild of high school pals Nathan Harrison (band leader) and Derek Roguski (band member emeritus), the Swamp Lilies express their own take on Appalachian old-time, Cajun, country and blues music. Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, the Swamp Lilies embrace the concept of ‘creole’ as a way of life and an approach to music. Their influences range from Tommy Jarrell to Canray Fontenot, from Delta blues to 2nd line brass.

About The Muppet Movie

The story of how the Muppet gang got together! Kermit the Frog is persuaded by a talent agent to pursue a career in Hollywood. Along the way, Kermit picks up Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and a motley crew of other Muppets with similar aspirations. All the while, Kermit must elude the grasp of a frog-leg restaurant magnate.
