The Cajun Country Revival

Saturday June 30 4 to 10pm

Santa Paula, California 93060, 93061

"Two Cajuns and an old time stringband walk into a bar…”

Spanning generations from across the nation the Cajun Country Revival is a veritable supergroup of American roots musicians. Comprised of Cajun musicians Jesse Lége and Joel Savoy and Portland Oregon’s Foghorn Stringband, this group presents a music that seems to embody all of the things that make life wonderful and together they’ve delighted audiences around the world celebrating rather than “performing" the music that brought them together: Cajun music and early Country music. Son of Cajun music royalty Marc and Ann and the founder of the Louisiana-based label Valcour Records, Joel Savoy is a GRAMMY winner for his production work with The Band Courtbouillon and a nine-time GRAMMY nominee, as well as a two-time winner of the Cajun French Music Association’s Fiddler of the Year Award. Having grown up literally at the feet of the Cajun great he represents his culture with an authority that few people his age can and his playing leaves no doubt that Cajun music is still very much alive. He has worked and played with the best of the best in south Louisiana as well as folks like John Fogerty, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Earle, and T-Bone Burnett. Sharing the stage with Joel for the last 15 years is the legendary Cajun powerhouse, Jesse Lége. Growing up in a rural pre-electricity home in Gueydan, LA, Jesse spoke Cajun French and learned music from relatives, neighbors, and the family's much-loved battery-powered radio. Today he is one of the most admired Cajun accordionists and vocalists in the world, known especially for his high, clear, “crying” vocals. Jesse has been playing traditional Cajun music and singing Cajun French songs for over 35 years performing with a variety of well-known musicians in various Louisiana and southeast Texas dancehalls. He is a winner of numerous CFMA awards: Traditional Band of the Year, Accordion Player of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Band of the Year, and Song of the Year. In 1998 he was inducted into the Cajun Music Hall of Fame. Completing the revival is Portland Oregon’s Foghorn Stringband, made up of Caleb Klauder (WA) and Stephen “Sammy” Lind (MN) and Reeb Willms (WA) and Nadine Landry (Québec). Credited for igniting the Old Time Renaissance in Northwest, the Foghorn Stringband continues to stand out as the shining gold standard for American Stringband music. With their 8th album, Devil in the Seat in hand, thousands of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it’s no surprise that this band, as proclaimed by Stuart Mason, The Fiddle Freak, "has blossomed into a full-blown force of nature that threatens world domination." Through all of this, they’ve never let the music grow cold; instead Foghorn has been steadily proving that American Roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.

Cajun and Zydeco Dance Instruction in Los Angeles Area : Karen Redding http://zydecola.blogspot.com/

 


From Dana D. Alameda, CA

 

Wanted to thank everyone who came out to hear Annie Staninec and her Zydeco/Cajun Playboys at the Hall last Sunday..One of the best shows we've had..Cool energy, great vibe, a good number of new people as well, the list goes on..Annie, Billy,Jim, LLoyd, Sam and Jahon just killed it..It just goes to show what I've been saying, how blessed we are to have such great talent every week..We don't have to go to a festival, then wait weeks to hear another band..We are just very blessed is all I can say...

 

This week, no dance as I have a private I'm working at the Hall, but we will be back next Sunday on the 24th with Andre Thierry, as usual 5:45ish start time, potluck as well..Also, if you are in the City next Wednesday, a week from today, Andre and I are doing a gig at Union Sq. thanks to Tanoa Stewart, as part of the Summer series they have..Andre plays from 6 to 6:50, I'll give a stunning dance lesson at 6:50 to 7:10, then Andre finishes..it's free too!!

 

Also, on July 1st, Lis and I are doing another workshop but this time we're including an hour before the regular one with a Basic lesson, as people have asked for it..This is for people who are just learning and as you all know, you can't learn much from a lesson at a dance, although a nice idea..but seldom works..So that will be at 2, then the regular Intermediate Zydeco and some Waltzing/Baisse-Bas lessons as well..That will be from 3-5..Let me know as I like to keep it balanced as much as I can..So thanks..That will be at the BEAT 2560 9th st. in Berkeley..

 

Glad the Warriors won, and really thanks for the nice support that you all give..See you soon..
