Creole du NordCAJUN MUSIC
Creole du Nord
Creole du Nord’s sound can be traced to southwest Louisiana’s traditional music mixed with some crossover tunes such as “Cluck Old Hen,” “Rueben’s Train” or some forgotten gospel song of the “Okay” label. When they say they play Creole and other traditional music, what they’re really talking about is some down home sawing or two-steppin’ on a sawdust floor. So come hear the band, move a little and have some fun. Chuck Anderson plays acoustic & electric bass, Beate Williams plays the banjo-uke & scrub board, Mark Palms plays accordion & fiddle, Mike Zivsak plays fiddle & guitar, and Randy Markey plays guitar & banjo.
