Tour name: Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys
Their stunningly clean and cohesive performance of Cajun French music from the backwaters of Southwest Louisiana has propelled them into the world music limelight. Never before in Cajun music has a comparable wealth of skills been brought to the same table. When all that heart and all that skill focus on the revelry of a hot two-step, then turn on a dime and deliver an a cappella ballad, then play something that sounds like Howlin’ Wolf fell in lust with a Creole girl, you’ve found the most Cajun music you can find in any one spot. You’ve found Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys.
Price: £20, £26. Weekend ticket (both Americana Weekend shows) from £30 (£40 Box seats)
