Reel of Joy with Andy Baylor’s Cajun Country Tour

Sun 13 December 2020, at 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Well-known roots music musician, Andy Baylor, has been playing his hybrid brand of extremely danceable Cajun music to enthusiastic audiences around bars, backyards, concert halls and festivals for many a year. He has visited the swamplands of Southern Louisiana on several pilgrimages and has brought back the feel, the rhythm and the musical nuance which makes Cajun music so appealing and mixed it with his own Australian roots.

“It’s a reel of joy, a funky mix of African beats, ancient fiddle tunes, blues and boogie, exotic French Creole culture, old-time country, good times and beautiful music” says Andy. “Come for dinin’ and drinkin’, and settin’n listenin’…there’ll be waltzes and two-steps, blues and boogie-woogie, old-timey fiddle reels and accordion stomps.
