The Magnolia Sisters – Louisiana traditions at their best! The Magnolia Sisters, whose brand new Arhoolie CD, Love's Lies releases March 11, play the whole gamut of music styles from southwest Louisiana: Cajun, Creole, dance hall favorites and front porch ballads. Get ready for some red-hot Louisiana foot-stompin’ fun. And there will be Celtic tunes too !! Fiddles, accordions, concertinas, rubboards, guitars. The Magnolia Sisters may be one of the only all-woman Cajun bands, but what distinguishes them most may be their repertoire, which includes not only seldom-heard dance tunes from Cajun and Creole tradition, but also beautifully-sung ballads that reveal a side of Cajun music not often heard these days. Soulful Cajun music with a woman's heart. Ann Savoy, Jane Vidrine, Anya Schoenegge and Lisa Trajan Reed represent the very best that modern Cajun music has to offer. Laissez les bon temps rouler !
