Cajun music developed in Louisiana among the French setters who moved there from Quebec after the British took over Canada.
The French influenced music has remained one of the vital forces in American folk, and Galway families will have a chance to experience this music at a show on Sunday March 21.
Tola Custy, Jimmy Fitzgerald, and Little Fish Mamin Cajun Band players Paul Gunning and John Martyn will serve up a tasty musical Cajun gumbo on fiddles, spoons, drums, guitar, Zydeco and Cajun accordions, the rubboard, and other instruments.
The show, hosted by Adventures In Music, takes place in the St Patrick’s Band Hall. Doors open at 2pm for children’s pre-concert activities with the performance starting at 2.30pm.
All ages welcome. Tickets are €5 per person or €20 for a family and are available at the door or in advance from the Town Hall Theatre and www.mykidstime.ie
