Cajun and Zydeko concert on tap for UH Courtyard next week

June 24, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

With Manchester-based bandleader Mark Palms at the helm on accordion and fiddle, the Creole Du Nord Trio beautifully re-creates the irresistibly lively sound of Cajun folk music with a mix of musical history, fine musicianship and pure dance-floor joy.

Creole du Nord’s sound can be traced to southwestern Louisiana. They play Zydeco, Cajun, Creole & other traditional music that suggests sounds from pre-mass media Americana. It’s what the band refers to as “down home sound for sawing or two-steppin’ on a sawdust floor.”

This concert is part of the Michigan Medicine Gifts of Art Summer Courtyard Concert Series.
