Dennis Stroughmatt et l'Esprit Creole will perform next in the Woods Hole Folk Music Society's series on Sunday, March 10 at 7:30 PM at the Woods Hole Community Hall, 68 Water Street.
The musical roots of Dennis Stroughmatt et l'Esprit Creole (Creole Spirit) are in the Creole and Cajun styles of "Upper Louisiana," the historic Acadian settlements that are now part of Illinois, Missouri and Indiana.
A blend of Celtic, Canadian and Old Time music, this lively and spirited fiddle-centric tradition reflects the roots of the mid-continent and bridges the gap between contemporary Canadian and Louisiana Cajun styles. Preserved by families in the Ozark foothills, the music remains largely intact, in contrast to the more contemporary styles of other French-influenced regions.
