8:00pm [8:00pm]Pro Art performance - Cajun Country Revival
Cajun Country Revival October 18, 2012 - 8:00 p.m. Summit City Lounge, Whitesburg, KY Admission: $12 adults, $8 seniors (55+), $6 students K-12, college students (with ID) and children under 5 FREE Cajun music is like country music; it’s the kind of music that has to be happy to keep from crying. Pouring out of dancehalls in Southwest Louisiana, the brash sounds of the Cajun accordion, the sweet drones of the fiddle and the piercing, eerie call of the Cajun singer are the hallmarks of this music. The lyrics, however, hint at the sadness behind the beats. Jesse Lége, Joel Savoy & The Cajun Country Revival dig into the deep roots of Cajun music, looking not only for beautiful, rare songs, but also for a commonality between the rural dancehalls of Louisiana and the honky-tonks of East Texas. Led by elder Cajun musician, Jesse Lége, the Cajun Country Revival also features Cajun fiddle wunderkind Joel Savoy and young roots country masters the Caleb Klauder Country Band, which includes Sammy Lind and Nadine Landry of the Foghorn Trio. It’s no exaggeration to say that this is a super-group of American roots musicians. This program is funded in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
