Creole Du Nord
Kerrytown Concert House is delighted to resume its Dance Hall Nights Series this season with Creole du Nord for an evening of music from the Zydeco and Cajun traditions. Don’t forget your dancing shoes for what is sure to be a lively and joyful night – New Orleans style – where we’ve cleared some room so you can laissez les bons temps rouler!
Creole du Nord is proud to be a small part of keeping the music of Louisiana spicy with Cajun and Zydeco music played for your pleasure with a smile. With Manchester-based bandleader Mark Palms at the helm, Creole Du Nord beautifully re-creates the irresistibly lively sound of Cajun folk music with a mix of musical history, fine musicianship, and pure dance-floor joy. Frequently singing in Creole, Palms is also a versatile instrumentalist, occasionally picking up a fiddle in between laying down the hip-swinging accordion lines that are the hallmark of the Cajun sound. A fantastic group of musicians, the band will present quintessential New Orleans tunes, lesser-known staples of Cajun music, with some traditional Appalachian numbers thrown in the mix.
