KFAI is proud to sponsor Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole at the Cedar Cultural Center on Sunday, March 9, at 7:30 pm.

One of the most noted young talents to emerge in Cajun or Creole music in the past few years, Cedric Watson is a fiddler, vocalist, accordionist, and songwriter of seemingly unlimited potential. Cedric has been making a name for himself reviving old Creole fiddling styles, injecting a healthy dose of his own personality and ingenuity, and bringing them to an ever-broadening audience.

Cedric has played with some of the great family names in Creole music, including Dexter Ardoin and the Creole Ramblers and Jeffrey Broussard and the Creole Cowboys.

Now Cedric continues to explore the roots of Louisiana’s Creole music with his own band, Bijou Creole. Playing a variety of old-school zydeco styles, original material and Creole traditionals, the polyrhythmic and syncopated sounds of Africa and the Caribbean are unmistakable in this ensemble of talented musicians.
