Poisson Rouge

September 22, 2022

Steeped in the rich Cajun heritage of southern Louisiana, Poisson Rouge perpetuates a message and a way of life under threat of extinction. Descendants of French ex-patriots from Nova Scotia, those that came to settle in Louisiana became known as Cajuns, or les Cadiens. Join us as we delve into the Acadian/ Creole heritage and the folkways that subsequently developed. Learn about a vibrant community and its traditions, as well as this band's sound and the many Louisiana festivals they play every year.
