American Folk Series feat. High Life Cajun Band + Clinton Davis

Join Kalabash instructor Clinton Davis and friends for our bi-monthly concert series of American Folk Music. 

This month we are thrilled to welcome The High Life Cajun Band!

The High Life Cajun Band plays straight-out Cajun dance music that is fresh, authentic and fun. The dueling fiddle and accordion, French lyrics, and clear dance beat, make this distinctly American folk music into a party.

The band is built around Paul Rathje on accordion, and Ben Guzman on fiddle. It regularly includes guitar and triangle, but can grow to include bass, rub board and even a second fiddle. Rathje spent 15 years mastering the accordion, and brings to it a deep admiration of the passionate, driven playing of 1980s Louisiana hit maker, Paul Daigle. Ben Guzman has been playing traditional American fiddle music for over a decade, and was one of the Feet in the Los Angeles Old Time band Triple Chicken Foot.

Clinton Davis is a multi-instrumentalist from Kentucky who can play anything you put in his hands: guitar, banjo, fiddle, piano, harmonica. With his wide palette of instruments and sounds, he performs old time songs, ballads, and dance music from the early 20th century Appalachian Mountains, Deep South, and Western frontiers.
