Beautiful waltzes, richly textured two-steps, Cajun French lyrics sung from the heart, and rhythms that hearken back to the roots of SW Louisiana Cajun music.

BUNKHOUSE BOYS are bringing an earthy new brand of Cajun music to New York’s Hudson Valley and beyond. This compact group takes Cajun music back to the source and close to its Creole and Cajun roots, playing two-steps, waltzes and blues, with vocals sung in Creole French. The boys hew closely to the original style while delivering a more primitive (for lack of a better word) sound rich in polyrhythms, especially as fiddle and accordion play off each other backed by rock solid guitar. Bunkhouse Boys make the dancers happy as well as anyone interested in hearing traditional Cajun music.
Listen to Us!

Bunkhouse Boys are Roger Weiss on fiddle, Laren Droll on accordion, and Mark Sagar on guitar, joined by Maggie McManus on rubboard and triangle.
