**Appalachian Country Cajun Dance Party** Featuring The ‘Johnny Can’t Dance’ Cajun Band & Flying Engine Trio
Melbourne ‘Southern’ Roots music specialist Craig Woodward returns to Northcote’s Open Studio to perform two of his most celebrated line-ups in a night of Appalachian ‘Old Time Stringband’ and traditional Cajun/Creole dance music. Melbourne’s own ‘Johnny Can’t Dance’ Cajun Band are one of Australia’s leading Cajun/Creole music ensembles and are dedicated practitioners of the traditional dance and social music of Rural Southwest Louisiana. Johnny Can’t Dance will perform a headline opening and closing set on the night featuring Cajun French vocal, Cajun accordion, fiddles, guitar and percussion. Flying Engine Trio will perform a special mid-show set of hypnotic groove-driven southern Appalachian style dance tunes in the traditional ‘stringband’ line-up of fiddle, 5-string banjo and guitar. Look forward to a great night of Two-Steps, One-Steps, Breakdowns, Waltzes, Mountain Blues & Stomps from the Swamps!
