The Brooklyn Cajun Jam focuses on the traditional Cajun & Creole music of southwest Louisiana. Vocals are sung in Cajun French and are backed up by button accordion, fiddle, guitar, and occasionally, ‘tit fer (triangle) bass and mandolin. Since most tunes are played in the keys of C and G, fiddles are usually tuned down a whole step to FCGD. Bring your instruments, join the music, or just come by and listen to some great traditional Cajun music.
The Empty Bottle Ramblers are: Tim Kness (Accordion & Fiddle) & Missy Roser (Fiddle). Having first started playing Cajun music together at the Augusta Heritage Center several years ago, they’ve developed an exceptional and compelling style which has been known to inspire all.
