Out of the Swamp are a trio who between them have close to 100 years of experience playing the Cajun and Creole music of S.W. Louisiana.
The trio are Chris Hall on accordion, Mitch Proctor on fiddle and Hazel Scott on guitar, all hailing from the swamps of Derby. Their aim is to create a stripped down back porch mixture of two steps, waltzes and swamp blues, plain and simple Louisiana dance music. They take their name from the album of the same name released in 1990 by R. Cajun and the Zydeco Brothers; the band that Chris Hall formed way back in the 1970’s. Chris and Mitch have played together in R. Cajun and The Bearcats for almost 30 years and Hazel and Chris have played together in The Cajun Roosters for over 10 years.
These musicians have headlined festivals all over Europe, and beyond, so Out of the Swamp are no strangers to firing up a rocking good time!
