Event: 'Cajun Dance W/ DL Cajun Trio, Dance Teacher Flory Katz' Print
  Cajun
Date: Friday, February 18, 2011 - 7:30 pm
Duration: 3 Hours

The DL Cajun Trio plays Cajun music from the prairies and bayous of SW Louisiana. Two steps, waltzes, blue with Cajun accordion, fidlle, guitar and French vocals. The group brings back memories of when the Saturday night dance was the community's main form of entertainment and socialization. Before electricity and amplification, the acousitc instruments and voice were the only way of making music. This band seeks to reenact that time and feeling in its music.

 

The DL Cajun Trio is:

Doug Lohman on guitar: Doug is a veteran of the Twin Cities Cajun music scene, having played with the Bone Tones starting in 1989. He now plays with the New Riverside Ramblers. This band has won an award from the Cajun French Music Association for both of their recordings, Saute le Barrie (Jump the Fence) 2004 and Les Grand Bois (The Big Woods)2009, an award given for the best recording by a band from outside of Cajun area. Doug and Mary worked for years together in the Buffalo Gals.

Mary Dushane on fiddle: Mary was an original member of the Powdermilk Biscuit Band from A Prairie Home Companion and has play in numerous groups over the years. She now plays with John in the Cajun Hotsoles.

John Terr on Accordion: John has been playing Cajun music for over 25 years and was a founding member of the Chicago Cajun Aces.
