The Lakes Of Pontchartrain – Various Artists

This beautifully haunting song is set in Louisiana. It is a creole song but has become a firm favourite across Ireland. Here it is performed by a number of talented Irish musicians. Which do you prefer?

  1. Thanks so much for posting/sharing these beautiful ballads of Lakes of Pontchartrain–it brings back memories to me when I was about 10yrs old, while living in Memphis TN my family drove down to N’Orleans across the impressive Pontchartrain bridge!! I have subsequently learned that this was an artificial/man-made lake and the bridge is the longest in U.S.!! These ballads are a Blessing/blessed relief from the onslaught of political/stressful e-mail/messages I received daily…
