The Pine Leaf Boys, who bring a sensational blend of Cajun and Creole music from Louisiana, have been added to the Fiddle Tunes faculty lineup for 2008!
The Pine Leaf Boys bring youthful exuberance to their inimitable brand of traditional Cajun and Creole music. In addition to their dance hall standards, their repertoire includes many of the more-obscure songs of past masters, performed with gusto. Skillful multi-instrumentalists, they often switch instruments during their raucous shows.
All five members, in their early twenties–Wilson Savoy, Cedric Watson, Jon Bertrand, Drew Simon, and Blake Miller–live in same shotgun house near downtown Lafayette. Steeped in music since childhood and hailing from various farms and villages in Cajun country, the Pine Leaf boys have been making a name for themselves not only for their youthful energy, but also by preserving the traditional Cajun sound while allowing it to breathe and stretch. They present their music on twin fiddles, accordion, bass, and drum.
