Cedric Watson and Bijou Creole
Not yet 30, Texas-born Cedric Watson is a zydeco hotshot with a broad neotraditionalist enthusiasm for the French and Spanish dance musics, Congo drumming, Native American ceremonial rhythms, and Creole melodies that all fed into the Louisiana sound. A former member of the Pine Leaf Boys Cajun band, the fiddler-accordionist eases off on zydeco's propulsive stomp by adding waltzes and two-steps to the party. Pre-show zydeco dance lessons begin at 7:30 p.m.
