Honoring the Life of Jillian Johnson (Rescheduled from Season 9)

Thursday, February 25, 2021

Featuring The Figs, Steve Riley, The Red Stick Ramblers, and more….

“Jillian Johnson had a way of making everything she did beautiful, unique, and special.”

Johnson’s former bandmates from The Figs come together with friends including Steve Riley, members of the Red Stick Ramblers, Woody Pines, and Johnson’s family to honor her in this special evening of music and art and to remember what a gift she truly was to all of us.

Lost to the world in the tragic Grand Theater shooting in Lafayette in July 2015, Jillian Johnson’s creative work was invaluable to the Acadiana community. From her music to her art, her home and neighborhood, and co-founding Parish Ink and Red Arrow Workshop, Jillian’s attention to detail and artistic ability were like no other.
