Cajun-Creole-Zydeco aficionados from the Northeast travel often to Louisiana to experience the music and dancing and “joie de vivre” that prevail there. Yet, north of the Mason Dixon Line, Bayou n’ Brooklyn presents an opportunity for those new to this tradition to see what it’s all about. Perhaps you’d like to learn a new song, refine a dance step or fiddle tune, or enjoying a Cajun-made authentic jambalaya. Talk of Louisiana—who is going soon, who’s just returned—can often be heard amongst the locals, and no doubt, bits and pieces of those talks and place names…Opelousas, Cecilia, Breaux Bridge, will fall on people’s ears at Bayou n’ Brooklyn.Welcome Cajun Supergroup: Christine Balfa, Cajun music’s most admired performer; Ed Poullard, accordion builder and Creole fiddler who still carries the tradition of the late Canray Fontenot, and Bebe Carriere; Cajun hall of Fame, Jesse Lége and Megan Brown, singer from Tepetate, LA. They’ll be workshops, open jams, and main-stage shows during the day and under the stars.Want to Volunteer?Email usfor details and schedule:cajuntalk.brooklyn@gmail.com
