Joli Blon, who take their name from a much-loved Cajun waltz, play traditional dance music from Louisiana, USA. You’ll hear two steps and waltzes with a bit of blues on the fiddle, accordion, guitar, drums and rub-board.
From their core all-women trio, to a full band of five with lap steel and drums, Joli Blon play festivals, gigs, Mardi Gras and swamp parties, getting audiences of all ages up and onto the dance floor.
Back together after a maternity break too long to mention, the band have experience of a broad range of venues from smaller Folk Festivals to Glastonbury! In addition, the band have had dates in the Netherlands, Ireland, and Louisiana.
Audience participation is what they aim for, and they are always happy to demonstrate some southern moves.
