Yorkshire Cajun & Zydeco Festival, Milton Rooms, Malton, March 14 to 16
THE 3rd Yorkshire Cajun & Zydeco Festival will be held at the Milton Rooms, Malton, from March 14 to 16.
“Our festival is fast establishing itself in the calendar for enthusiasts from all over Britain and Europe,” says organiser John Adamson.
“It’s also introducing this fabulous Louisiana music, dance and entire culture to a public who may otherwise not come across one of the best-kept secrets of the music and dance world.
“After two highly successful festivals, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better still with great bands, dance and music workshops and Cajun food.”
A new feature for 2014 will be the chance to experience an authentic Louisiana Mardi Gras celebration when the Milton Rooms are transformed on March 16 with banners, bunting and beads.
“Festival-goers will be encouraged to dress up and wear costumes and masks,” says John.
The live music line-up is complete already. “Visiting us from Europe will be the fabulous young Dutch band Front Row Zydeco, while Phil Underwood will bring his band Colin And The Crawfish back to Yorkshire after their brilliant performance last year,” says John.
