Creole Belles with Andrew Carriere and dance instructor Cheryl McBride
$15 advance / $20 door
$5 advance / $10 door

Dance Lesson at 7:30
Originally from New Orleans, Cheryl McBride uses a little hometown spice to help you learn to two step, waltz and line dance to lively Louisiana music.

Music at 8pm
The Creole Belles!

The California based all-women band is well known in the Cajun music scene for bringing the raw, driving authenticity of southwest Louisiana dancehalls to their shows. The Creole Belles have performed with numerous legends from Ry Cooder to Peter Rowan. They were recently part of a Grammy-nominated live album celebrating their record label, Arhoolie Records. The band has performed at the Mill Valley Film Festival and alongside artists such as Los Cenzontles, Maria Muldaur, Laurie Lewis. Members of the band have performed with Doc Watson, The Horseflies, and Prairie Home Companion Favorites BeauSoleil among others.


Popular zydeco musician and Louisiana native Andrew Carrière is a regular special guest and contributes Creole French vocals and some powerful accordion to the CD, as exemplified in the medley of tunes learned from his late father, legendary fiddler Bébé Carrière of the renowned Carrière Brothers from Lawtell, Louisiana. Andrew and many people from southwest Louisiana emigrated to California in the last half century and brought their music with them, inspiring a new generation of California musicians like fiddler Delilah Lee Lewis and accordionist Maureen Karpan to travel to Louisiana to learn to play the music.


The Creole Belles' self-titled CD on the Arhoolie record label, produced by Greg Landau and mastered by two-time Grammy winning engineer John Greenham, showcases the dynamic collaboration between Andrew's soulful Creole roots and the Belles' heartfelt expression of the music they have embraced over the years.


"a highly intoxicating brew of Cajun and Creole music played with spirit, reverence, and love." - Dan Willlging, Dirty Linen

"Although recorded in California, this could easily pass through Louisiana cultural customs as the real deal." - Jeff Kaliss, Songlines

"Nice, raw sounding violin, furious accordion and rhythms that make your feet move . . ." - FolkWorld
