THE SOUND OF A CAJUN FIDDLE
…in a cypress grove at the edge of the great swamp, the chank-a-chank of an accordion and the shuffle of feet on a dance floor on a warm night.
These are the sights and sounds that captivated us when we first visited southwest Louisiana. It is a culture so different from ours; it seems almost everyone plays an instrument, if only to bang on an iron triangle or rattle some spoons.
We bring that feel to our dances in the Seattle area, where a city-dweller can experience the community of dance, where listeners can transport to the farm and bayou area roadhouse.
SWAMP SOUL PERFORMS DANCE MUSIC
…from Southwest Louisiana, a mixture of French, blues, and zydeco music that still moves dancers around the world. The core musicians have traveled extensively in Louisiana, learning tunes and style from Louisiana musicians. The accordionist and fiddler have performed this music for 25 years in this area, and are backed up by experienced guitarists and percussionists to create a dance groove that excites the feet and invites friendship.
Take a look at our calendar and join us at one of our events. We play for regular dances at the Eagles Aerie #1 in north Seattle, and can be seen around the Puget Sound area at music festivals, farmer’s markets and mall dance venues. We’re also available for private events – graduation parties, weddings, birthday parties and more. Simply contact us on our event booking page for complete information.
