The Alexander Kasser Theater will be turned into a wildly energetic dance hall for audiences on October 24 when Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole and Feufollet, two Lafayette, Louisiana-based bands known for their astonishing magnetic charm, join forces to celebrate the vitality of Creole and Cajun music.
Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cedric Watson, a 2009 Grammy Award-nominee who heads Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole, plays Creole fiddle and accordion, and is the band’s songwriter. Feufollet, formed in 1995 by the then eight-year-old accordionist/singer Chris Stafford and eleven-year-old fiddler Chris Segura, rapidly became one of the most sought-after Cajun bands in the Creole and Cajun area surrounding Lafayette.
P.S. Audiences can turn into instant Cajun/Zydeco dance experts. Before the show--between 4 and 6 p.m. that day--free lessons in Cajun/Zydeco dance will be given in the Memorial Auditorium on the Montclair State University campus. An event for all ages.
All tickets are $15, and are available at the Alexander Kasser Theater Box Office or by calling 973-655-5112 or online at www.peakperfs.org.
