Creole Accordion with Preston Frank 2-hour workshop at KGNU - Feb 23, 2019 11:30 AM
A link to traditional zydeco and an era that has gone by, Preston Frank may be most famous for giving
mega-zydeco star and eldest son Keith his start as a drummer as a child. But hes also famous for his
composition Why Do You Want to Make Me Cry that is part of the repertoire every zydeco band plays
today. The senior Frank has been laying down his fearless bayou groove; yet traditional zydeco for
decades thats a combination of zydeco, old-time Creole, Cajun and soul that will make you wanna shake
what it took your mama nine months to bake. Like Poullard, Frank is a familiar sight and instructor at
Louisiana Folkroots Balfa Camp where he teaches by example and encourages participation. Come learn
from one of the last of zydecos living legends.
