What they're saying ...

The best kept secret around

Hello.  While walking in downtown Abbeville, I saw your flyer advertising the Janis Joplin concert.  Since May 15th was my birthday, and being a child of the 60’s I thought that might be pretty cool.  We had the best time at the barn and enjoyed the warm and friendly people there and their great stories about the building. We think that you are the best kept secret around. We would like to be put on your e-mail list for upcoming events.  Thank you for a memorable birthday.

A superb job …

Cultural and Historical preservation are important to every community in our state. With that said, you and Johnny are doing a superb job of doing just that at Richards Sale Barn here in Abbeville. The concerts and Folklore stories that are presented to a very attentive audience are well done and of high quality. I would not hesitate to recommend that anyone take the opportunity to attend one of the productions, and enjoy the very unique venue and performance. The importance of Richard’s Sale Barn to the Abbeville and Vermilion Parish cannot be overstated.   Keep up the wonderful work and thanks for all that you do for our community.

Seeped in history and tradition …

Thanks for making this possible. I’ve only been to one concert, but I used to go to cattle sales there with my father. The concert was great and the atmosphere is seeped in history and tradition. It’s so neat that y’all have not tried to fancify the place. It’s just right, just as it is. I think there are cowboy ghosts all around, and they’ll probably enjoy Henry Gray too.

Thanks again,
