Pete plays cajun accordeon, cajun fiddle and sings in cajun french.

Previous cajun music experience as part of the Harrison Shaw Cajun Band, Triolet Cajun, and the Courtableau Cajun Band.

Pete is looking for interested musicians to play this infectious foot-tapping music. Training given.

Looking for:

- singer / guitarist

- fiddle player

- triangle / rubboard player

and maybe a drummer.

Cajun music is exciting - you can tell from those rhythms – two-steps, Cajun waltzes, and Cajun blues.

If interested, contact Pete on 01778 571563 or 01778 570115.
