From the bayous of Essex and the backstreets of Paris, Acadian Strings are a fiddle led band playing traditional and new Cajun and Creole music. Featuring Charlie Skelton on fiddle and vocals, Naik Peudon on fiddle, alto, and ‘tit fer, Rob James on guitar and vocals, and Carol Wilson on double bass, vocals, ‘tit fer, and frottoir. Long steeped in Cajun music from their experiences playing with various bands throughout the U.K and Europe, the band draws from early recordings, through the swing influenced 30’s Cajun string bands, to contemporary Cajun music to create a fresh interpretation of two steps and waltzes with innovative arrangements featuring twin fiddles and rich harmony vocals.
