This compact group takes their music back to the basics, close to its Creole and Cajun roots. The Bunkhouse Boys’ Creole-inspired rhythms keep dancers coming back for more. Their latest recording T’it Oiseau has been getting air time on KRVS Louisiana Public Radio! Their repertoire continues to expand with tunes you won’t hear anywhere else.
The Bunkhouse Boys will be hosting Cajun jams and playing for Dance classes in the heart of the Catskills at the fantastic Southern Week at Ashokan – the place to learn Appalachian, Old Time, Cajun and Zydeco music and dance, and more at all levels from scratch to advanced. Classes are taught by accomplished artists. Choose camping or bunkhouse accommodations, and enjoy great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Roger Weiss of the Bunkhouse Boys will be teaching Cajun fiddle. Laren Droll of Bunkhouse Boys will be teaching Cajun Accordion from scratch – spare accordions will be available for use in class.
In September the Bunkhouse Boys expect to resume booking events throughout the Hudson Valley. We will be back. Watch this space or arnb.org for our schedule.
