Ebony Barrett-Kennedy is no stranger to stage. Along with her three brothers & mother, she began singing in church at an early age, and traveled regionally singing a cappella gospel. This began an early love of music. She later joined Toussaint and the China Band. With her brother as the front man, they created a soulful sound that swept the east coast. Unique blends of roots and lover’s reggae, funk, and soul presented opportunities to perform with artists such as John Legend, Wyclef Jean, and the Wailers and travel on a USO Tour. She brought this style to Lafayette as the front woman of Ebony & the Ruckus.

The Art of Magic
Friday, October 18
Prepare to be mesmerized by Indiana magician Scott Starkey, known as the Wizard of the Wabash, as he dabbles in eerie mind tricks with his “probably psychic” abilities. In his 90-minute highly interactive show, Scott will delve deep into the mysteries of the mind, revealing untold thoughts and hidden secrets. He’ll even help you explore your own latent abilities of observation and mental acuity and perceive art in a whole different way.
