Louisiana Sensations Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole and Red Stick Ramblers to Perform at Duke

Cedric Watson
Duke Performances will present Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole and Red Stick Ramblers , two of the hottest roots music acts from Louisiana on Saturday, November 13, 2010.

Watson cut his teeth on the countrified chansons françaises of east Texas and Lafayette, Louisiana. The Grammy-nominated prodigy works Acadian la-la tunes, Creole waltzes, and sizzling Zydeco stomps, hollering in French while his band blazes behind him.

They appear with Red Stick Ramblers, the fast-living hybridists from Baton Rouge who use Cajun, swing, and country-western jazz ballads to create a rowdy new language—sometimes French, sometimes English.
