Cajun Roosters (UK/D)


Their latest projects in the making alongside tours with major Louisiana acts was the fourth album 'okra and a pepper' featuring new vocalist Hazel Scott and the album: Cajun Roosters & friends: songs of death, divorce, drinking and dancing. Recordings with special guests: Grammy winner Steve Riley, Grammy nominees Cedric Watson, Corey Ledet and Dwayne Dopsie, The Lafayette Rhythm Devils, Yvette Landry and Sarah Savoy. It's about working together to promote this music and bring it to a wider public in every way we can.

 Some indication of the reputation of the band is reflected in the many awards which have come their way since they formed.
