They maintain a very active schedule playing major festivals throughout the Midwest, including Taste of Chicago, Gumbo Ya Ya, and Evanston First Night as well as The House of Blues, FitzGeralds’, and Schuba’s. The Ramblers have appeared at Brookfield Zoo’s Swamp Exhibit opening as well as its American Airlines sponsored Rhythm and Roots Festival 1998-2002, Navy Pier, and the Chicago Bulls. They also present educational programs on the Cajuns to social groups and cultural institutions including The Old Town School of Folk Music, The Chicago Cultural Center, The Terra Museum, The Shrine to Music Museum and present programs to elementary through university students.
