Event description

Description

Includes Cajun/Zydeco dance lesson at 8 pm.

Back in 2009 two of the Bay Area’s top traditional musicians teamed up to form the Midnite Ramblers, playing roots music steeped in authentic Cajun and Creole traditions. They deliver irresistibly danceable Cajun classics. An early year of intense musical experiences in Louisiana made the Ramblers’ sound even more authentic to the Cajun tradition. Singer and fiddler Agi Ban is a founder of the Aux Cajunals as well as the Midnite Ramblers. Accordion player and fiddler Mark Marcin is a former teacher at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, where his love of Cajun, Creole, and zydeco music led to learning accordion from Ray Abshire, Jimmy Breaux, and others. He studied fiddle with Suzy Thompson and Cedric Watson.

The Ramblers are rounded out by guitarist-singer Alan Senauke (a veteran of countless roots bands including California Cajun Orchestra, he’s also a Zen priest) and bassist-singer Allegra Thompson, best-known as a member of Thompsonia (The Thompson Family band) with her mother and father - the venerable Suzy and Eric Thompson. As Marcin proclaims, “Bring your dancing shoes and join the Midnite Ramblers for a night of lively two-steps, soulful blues and haunting waltzes!”
