January 2014 Louisiana Rhythms Archives

Karl here as your host today. I played a lot of Balfa and Nathan Abshire related Cajun music to start the show. Then switched to some Zydeco with Geno Delafose, Buckwheat and Clifton Chenier. Then I finished up with a little Swamp Pop to highlight the Return of the “Swamp Pop Extravaganza”. Yes, we are bringing this fundraiser back to the Eagles on February 22nd after an 18 month hiatus to clean the detritus of our last trip to Holly Beach……….

Eric features Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole (appearing at the Cedar Cultural Center March 9), as well as the New Riverside Ramblers and JJ's Zydeco Paydirt (appearing at the Withrow Ballroom February 8)

Karl starts with the old stuff and moves to the youngsters. Lots of Valcour releases in the second hour.

Eric plays some Preston Frank, Al Berared & Jesse Lege, Lawrence “Black” Ardoin, and some local bands that will be appearing soon!
