Canada Water Culture Space welcomes Grammy nominee Cedric Watson to Southwark this May for an intimate London show.
Spearheading the emerging generation of Cajun and Creole musicians, Cedric Watson is a fiddler, vocalist and songwriter. Injecting a healthy dose of his own personality and ingenuity, Cedric has been exciting an ever-broadening audience with his unique take on traditional Creole music, with new compositions that expand the genre while still respecting its roots. Three of his albums have been nominated for Grammy Awards.
Cedric Watson has played with some of the great family names of the genre, including Dexter Ardoin & the Creole Ramblers and Jeffrey Broussard & his Creole Cowboys, and was most recently a featured member of the Pine Leaf Boys. He has performed across the USA, as well as Asia, Canada and the Caribbean, where he has developed an interest in connecting Louisiana Creole music to other cultures.
Moving with ease between fiddle and accordion and adding his strong blues inflected vocals, Cedric's creative style and obvious joy in playing make him and engaging and exciting performer.
