Feufollet at Blue Moon Cafe
Although Feufollet has often been hailed as the future of Cajun music, a more current assessment must admit that they are now the present of Cajun music. Once idolized at at early age for their precocious musicianship and sent all over the world as youthful emblems of Acadianas cultural resurgence, the members of Feufollet have, in the meantime, grown into the music as young adults. While Feufollet remains central to the neotraditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their latest album finds the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century.
Formed in 1995 when accordionist/singer Chris Stafford was 8 and fiddler Chris Segura was 11, Feufollet quickly developed a following in Acadiana, not merely for their youthful energy but also for their surprising musical maturity and instrumental expertise in the traditional music of the Cajun culture.
Feufollet continues to be known for excellent musicianship, beautiful vocals, and innovation based on a solid grasp of the tradition, making them one of the most exciting Cajun bands in Southwest Louisiana.
Over the course of the 10 plus years that they has been performing and recording, they have built upon their regional popularity, delighting audiences of all ages at folk festivals and performance venues throughout the United States and French Canada.
Feufollet can also be booked as part of Eye for Talent’s celebration of Cajun/Zydeco music, Fête de Louisiane!, along with Grammy-nominated Creole musician, Cedric Watson and his band Bijou Creole.
