The 5th Annual Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival: Lost Bayou Ramblers - 8/20

Acclaimed Cajun rockers Lost Bayou Ramblers bring the party to our courtyard - and will perform music from their latest album "Mammoth Waltz". One of the series' best!
City Winery is proud to announce the 5th Annual Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival - a fun, FREE "After-Work Backyard Party" held every Tuesday from June 4th through August 27th, from 5:00PM-7:30PM!
Food and beverages will be available for purchase - there will be an assortment of wines from City Winery, ice cold beer from Radeberger, ice cream and ice cream sandwiches from Jacques Torres, and hot dogs and other snacks offered by Great Performances.

Lost Bayou Ramblers was born deep in South Louisiana performing ol
d style, predominantly acoustic Cajun music at clubs and festivals across the US, Europe, and Canada. After years of playing traditional style, the Lost Bayou Ramblers found themselves needing to grow. To create a new sound that combined not just the sounds of their heritage, but all the musical influences they grew up loving. It began with the recording of their new album Mammoth Waltz at Dockside Studios in Maurice, La. The idea was to incorporate more influences, sounds, technology, and stylings with the traditional Cajun instrumentation. The resulting 11 tracks speak for themselves.

By chance and by friendship, a number of talented special guests inspired Lost Bayou Ramblers by bringing their own unique backgrounds to the recordings. The band began experimenting more in their live shows, and their new sound was born. It has developed into a mammoth style that evokes the power of it’s predecessors while reaching for the future; when Lost Bayou Ramblers is at full fervor, even the traditional accordion and fiddle take on new modern dynamics.

Whether you are a rock purist, Cajun purist, or looking for something more adventurous from both genres, Mammoth Waltz delivers.
