The Deep Roots Late Night shows are particularly lively and usually sell out early. Musician David Carmichael, who has booked the acts for this year’s Festival, is excited about the wonderful collaborations in the making. Both nights are going to be rockin’.
“Cajun Heat,” a licensed dance party, happens at the Rafter’s Heritage Barn, Old Orchard Inn, Friday Sept. 27, starting 10:30 pm. Unisson, a great young Acadian band from Clare; David Greely, with his Cajun/Irish roots from Louisiana, and his more than 40 year love affair with the fiddle on stages all over the world; and Montreal-based Cajun/Zydeco band, Grouyan Gombo, with their savory gumbo of southern and northern traditions, will ensure temperatures rise on and off the dance floor. Georgette LeBlanc, writer-dancer-actor-author from Baie-Ste-Marie, will emcee this wonderful Cajun/Acadian collaboration.
Saturday night, again at 10:30pm, at the Rafter’s Heritage Barn, Old Orchard Inn, “Blues in the Night,” brings Ray Bonneville, with his deep-grooving blues style and bring-down-the-house performance reputation; and one of the most original and exciting young bands on the scene today, The 24th Street Wailers, together for what will be another memorable night of entertainment and dancing.
And just in case you need a little incentive … volunteer at this year’s Festival, and tickets to these two events are half price (only $10 per ticket and up to a maximum of four tickets per volunteer).
