Joli Blon, who take their name from a much-loved Cajun waltz, play traditional dance music from South West Louisiana. You’ll hear two steps and waltzes with a bit of blues to spice up the mix, played on the fiddle, accordion, guitar and Triangle.
From their core all-women trio, to the full five piece line up with added lap steel and drums, Joli Blon play festivals, gigs, Mardi Gras and swamp parties, getting audiences of all ages up and onto the dance floor.
Having played together for well over 20 years, including a lengthy maternity break, the band have experience of a broad range of venues, from smaller Folk Festivals to Glastonbury! In addition, the band have had dates in the Netherlands, Ireland, and Louisiana.
