Old-Style Cajun Honky-Tonk Dance!

Christine_balfa_powell Friday, June 29
Old Style Cajun Dance, 8 pm
Building 204 Dance Floor
General Admission: $10/children 18 and under free
• Christine Balfa Powell and Richard Comeaux

Dance to the classic sixties’ Cajun roadhouse dance hall sounds, or just come and listen to the hot Cajun sounds of pedal steel, lap slide, twin fiddles, and rhythm section!

Christine Balfa Powell grew up playing triangle with her father, Dewey Balfa, and absorbed music and language from the thriving culture around Basile, Louisiana. She plays guitar and is the primary vocalist of the Balfa Toujours, a brilliant young band from Louisiana making a name for itself in traditional music. She is also the founder and director of Louisiana Folk Roots, a non-profit organization that supports Louisiana traditions.

Richard Comeaux, perhaps the best pedal-steel player in Louisiana, is currently signed to Capitol Records with his band River Road. Comeaux also plays pedal steel for Lil’ Band O’ Gold. As the Austin American Statesman notes, “Comeaux’s playing straddles melodies like a graceful tightrope walker.”
