ABOUT JOURDAN THIBODEAUX ET LES RODAILLEURS:
Jourdan Thibodeaux is the guy you picture when someone says the word “authentic.” Straight from the blackjack boggy woods of Cypress Island, Louisiana, Jourdan is one of only a small number of young people speaking Cajun French today, and his soulful singing and fiddling are the perfect medium for his ever-growing repertoire of original Louisiana French songs.
ABOUT THE RECHERCHE TRIO:
Multi-instrumentalist Matty Metcalfe pairs up with avant auteur Cathy Monnes for an exciting new musical collaboration that takes listeners on a journey from Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras to dark-lit European seasides and speakeasies and back through Latin American hill country with sounds both familiar and foreign. Their entrancing musical selections are simultaneously accessible and exotic, filtering well-known era-spanning American and esoteric songs through a soundscape of Zydeco accordion, Appalachian fiddle, blues guitar and funky drum breaks that together creates an infectiously ‘full-band’ sound.
