Le Winston Band

  • Quebec (Canada)
  • New Orleans-style festive Zydeco

One foot in authentic Quebec folk and the other in the bayous of Louisiana, The Winston Band is a strangely happy mixture of styles. The group borrows from traditional music from here and there and sets it to a solidly electric sound. They draw on the long-standing and often marginalized art of zydeco or zarico, the music of the Creole peoples of Louisiana, and revive it by combining it with the hot Cajun sound of New Orleans, the folklore of Lower Canadian evenings and the ardour of punk-rock. To the sound of the combination of the button accordion, the violin and the wash board, you just tap your feet and let go!
