Bayou X at Roots on the River!

Langdon NH's own Cajun/Zydeco/Worldbeat band BAYOU X kicks off the Sat June 9 program at the 19th Annual Roots on the River Festival, Noon - 1 pm. Led by New Orleans native Pete Simoneaux on fiddle & vocals with spouse/partner Linda Simoneaux on accordion & vocals, Bayou X is celebrating release of it's brand new CD, Your Mother Must Be Something Special. While based in New England, the music of Bayou X is deeply rooted in the music of Louisiana Cajun and Creole culture, while incorporating a wide range of global "creole" musical genres that have contributed to the DNA of Cajun, Zydeco and New Orleans music. The music of Bayou X is above all else, high energy dance music, of a decidedly fun and positive outlook. Their current album, Your Mother Must Be... Something Special, is noteworthy for it's focus on original compositions, grounded in traditional genres,  but unafraid of turning the tropes of those genres inside out, while never losing sight of the party vibe!
