Joe Hall  (accordion) The Hall family was blessed with a hard-working father figure who provided in every way for his family of six out on the southwest Louisiana prairies. Even though Joe never had to work in the fields like most of the Creole share croppers since the days of the Civil War, his is an old soul.  He did not necessarily break corn or pick sweet potatoes, but he did lend an attentive ear to the many kernels of ancient wisdom from his elders. They recognized him as the “anointed one ” and willingly, Joe Hall accepted the torch of the Creole cultural flame. The American Cajun Blues & Zydeco Festival is a wonderful event to feature the music of Joe Hall & The Canecutters.

Marshall Baker (fiddle) grew up in Portland, Oregon USA.  His father taught him to play the fiddle when he was six and he hasn’t stopped playing since. He entered local and national contests and usually placing top five in the state championships.  Marshall now tours with Joe Hall & The Cane Cutters and plays regularly on Bourbon Street at his view home in New Orleans, Louisiana. Baker describes fiddling as “having its own little subculture” and is honored to play with Joe Hall & The Canecutters.

Mark Palms (guitar) a musician who chased the heritage of traditional American music by studying knee-to-knee with cultural giants from West Virginia to West Africa. Mark joined forces with Joe Hall when they met in Louisiana at the Eunice Mardi Gras in 2005.  He founded Fruge Records to support Louisiana artists (Nolton Semien, Mitch Reed) and as a member of The Cane Cutters or as a solo artist, Mark continues to honor the legacy of traditional masters through performing and teaching.
