Cedric Watson & Bijou Creole

Beautifully representing the new generation of Louisiana Creole musicians, though he grew up in a small town in Texas, Cedric Watson is a formidable triple threat. He plays creative zydeco on accordion, then veers much closer to Cajun music when he switches to his trusty violin. And Watson sings soulfully, with panache and deep feeling. This eloquent young man has a terrific, subtle band called Bijou Creole. And he writes great, fresh material that's deeply rooted in tradition, yet often surprises the careful listener. Watson is a big reason why Lafayette, La., is such a music hotspot these days. Tom Surowicz
