Ring in the New Year at Chelsea Alehouse Brewery with Cajun & Zydeco music, party favors, yummy food, great beer, door prizes, photo booth, and more!
Creole Du Nord’s sound can be traced to southwest Louisiana’s traditional music mixed with some crossover tunes. They play Zydeco, Cajun & other traditional music that suggests sounds rooted in pre-mass media Americana. On accordion, fiddle, banjo, electric guitar, bass and percussion they mix things up between different forms of Old Time Creole & Cajun music. Their music is what the band refers to as “.. a down-home sound bound to keep you moving…”

CREOLE DU NORD - Cajun, Zydeco & other traditional music
Mark Palms, P.O. 133 Manchester MI 48158
The band’s sound can be traced to southwest Louisiana’s traditional music mixed with some crossover tunes as in “Cluck Old Hen” or “Rueben’s Train”. They play Zydeco, Cajun & other traditional music that suggests sounds rooted in pre-mass media Americana. On accordion, fiddle, banjo, electric guitar, bass, percussion, they mix things up between different forms of Old Time & Cajun music and most of it is dance, dance, dance. This music usually keeps uneasy company with slicker stuff. It’s what the band refers to as "..down home sound for sawing or two-steppin’ on a sawdust
floor ..that’s what we’re really talking about." So, come hear the band, move a little, and have some fun.
So...Where's the passion? - traditional music ! It seems that old time music and Louisiana music bring a real element of passion to this band. It’s become of mission of of band leader Mark Palms to find Cajun tunes, waltzes, and old time fiddle music that lifts the spirit. “Creole du Nord” is proud to be a small part of keeping this passionate music alive. So if you find us playing for a community event, a festival, or simply for pleasure... we hope you enjoy what you hear and can appreciate what we love most.

Mark Palms joined FIAA recently and told me about this. He plays accordion and fiddle. If you can go, it should be a lovely and fun gliding (guten Rutsch) into the New Year. Enjoy! You will pay by going on line or by calling. Do it quickly. It will sell out.
