Over the past decade Miriam Hogan has nurtured a deep interest and passion for Cajun music. She has made attention to detail of upmost importance when learning and playing this amazing music, not only with her authentic and powerful rhythm guitar style, but also with her compelling and emotive vocals which she delivers with clarity and passion. An eclectic mix of Cajun songs and tunes often overlooked and rarely heard in modern times.
In recent years Miriam has cut her teeth playing on the UK Cajun and Zydeco scene with her trio The Mirikools, and more recently the all-girl Cajun supergroup Joli Blon.
Hogan’s Heroes is a new venture which had its debut at the Gloucester Cajun & Zydeco festival 2018. This first performance was met with great enthusiasm by the watching and dancing crowd, so great was the response that there could be no doubt that the band should continue.
For the Big Weekend 2018 Hogan’s Heroes are delighted to announce a special guest star Drew Simon from Louisiana USA joining the band on the drums.
Hogan’s other Heroes for the Big Weekend include;
Murray Brailsford – Bass
Jock Tyldesly – Fiddle
Gavin Lewery – Accordion
Authentic, emotive, and delivered with excellence, traditional Cajun dance music at the top of its game!
