Join Rough Chowder for an evening of music and dancing. Let them take you on a transatlantic journey to the bayous of Louisiana, with the beautiful melodies of the accordion playing a traditional Cajun waltz or two-step together with foot stomping Swamp Blues and Zydeco.
Cajun music is dance music whether played in the dancehall, during Mardi-Gras or on the back porch. You can two-step, swing, jive, jitterbug and waltz to the music or just sit back, listen and enjoy.
If you would like to join the dance during the evening you can brush up on your steps, or perhaps learn a few more, at the beginners’ Cajun Dance Workshop led by instructors Kay Anderson and Satu Phillips before the
Rough Chowder hail from Sussex. Singing in Cajun French and English they combine traditional Cajun and Zydeco with their own original songs to produce a highly danceable and infectious sound guaranteed to get you on
the dance floor. They play at Festivals all over the UK and Europe and are delighted to be returning to Hurst Festival this year.
We look forward to welcoming y’all. Laissez les bons temps rouler – let the good times roll.
