Dec. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Cajun Bands typically are influenced by roots country music. Most Cajun bands could be considered a kind of fusion between French/American country with addition of the instruments triangle (called Tit fer) and accordion.  

Cajun music is one of America’s precious cultural resources and here in Brooklyn, NY, it
is a rare occurrence. The songs played by Cajun musicians today were handed down from generation to generation. It is a tradition in this music for musician to add their own personal technique and individuality to the song, performing and making it uniquely their own.

Tim Kness of Boston's Empty Bottle Ramblers join Maggie Hoffee and Julie Winterbottom will be rockin’ the lounge at Dixon Place with music of Southwest Louisiana, upbeat, danceable roots music that includes spirited two-steps and beautifully heartwarming, bittersweet waltzes that express the unique culture of the Cajun people opportunity to hear this style of music which is gaining popularity around the country, around the world and here in the New York area!
