Cedric Watson returned to his roots in Louisiana after growing up in Sealy, Texas so he could develop his Creole music in the towns and pastures where his predecessors once played. One of the most noted young talents to emerge in Cajun or Creole music in the past few years, Cedric Watson is a fiddler, vocalist, accordionist and songwriter of seemingly unlimited potential. This GRAMMY-nominated release shows the excitement and dynamism Cedric and his band Bijou Creole bring to audiences year-round, making it clear why their talent has become one of the most exciting things in Louisiana music.
