Joli Blon

Joli Blon

Joli Blon, who take their name from a much loved Cajun waltz, play traditional dance music from Louisiana: a riotous mix of red-hot accordion, rip-roaring fiddle and gutsy, driving guitar. Stomping, hypnotic two-steps, mournful waltzes telling of heartache and despair so sad they make you happy, and a bit of blues - all sung in Cajun French and brought to you by a core trio of women.

The band have experience of a broad range of venues and play festivals, gigs, Mardi Gras’ and swamp parties, where they get audiences of all ages up and onto the dance floor. Festival dates have included Towersey Folk Festival and Glastonbury (Croissant Neuf) in the UK, as well as others in the Netherlands, Ireland, and Louisiana.

Their music is uplifting and infectiously danceable, and audience participation is their aim - they are always happy to demonstrate some southern moves.

Cajun Accordion - Lucy Vines (Horses Brawl)
Fiddle - Fliss Premru (The Rosinators)
Guitar/Rub-board - Miriam Hogan (The Mirikools)

‘Laissez les bon temps roulez’ – as they say in downtown N’Orleans... and Stoke-on-Trent...
