November Historical Happy Hour Featuring Josh Garrett

Please join the West Baton Rouge Museum on Friday, November 17, 2023 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM for Historical Happy Hour. This month’s Happy Hour will feature Josh Garrett.  

Josh Garrett is a songwriter, singer, and guitar player from New Roads, Louisiana who grew up in Houma. At the age of 12, he began playing his father’s guitar and writing songs, and by the age of 20, Garrett was performing several times a week. After recording his first album, Changed Man, Garrett went on the road at the age of 24 to regionally promote his music.

It was in Nashville, Tennessee where Garrett recorded his second album, Live on Printer’s Alley - a double album released November 2009. Shortly after, he returned to Louisiana and began work on his third album, String of Problems, released August 2011. String of Problems skyrocketed to number one on the Roots Music Louisiana Blues charts and rose to become the number one spot for two weeks in a row on the American Blues Scene “Blues Top Five.”   While continuing to tour and promote his unique brand of Louisiana roots and soul, Garrett recorded his latest album, Honey For My Queen. 

"Josh Garrett is a young triple threat blues man, with a winning combination of unique Cajun flavor guitar work, soulful vocals, and a killer band.  I am honored to perform with him." -Jimmy Hall, winner of the 2023 Blues Blast Music Award for Blues Video of the Year.

Garrett is recognized by industry musicians such as local Blues man Kenny Neal and more.  A musician and a performer, Josh Garrett looks forward to sharing his music with the with the audience during the November Historical Happy Hour. We look forward to seeing you there!
