COCHON BLEU


cajun: vocals/div.instr. - vocals/div.instr. - vocals/div.instr. - drums/washboard


Fifteen years of honing their craft, playing hundreds of gigs and releasing six well-received albums have made Cochon Bleu into what they are today: one of Hollands most sparkling bands. Accordion, guitars, mandolin - in fact, anything with strings on it, plus vigorous singing are their weapons of choice, backed by a steadily pulsating rhythm section.

 

 

Pure cajun music was their point of origin, but they have absorbed many influences along the way and gradually developed a style of their own. Two things remain, though: French lyrics and ceaseless energy.


Anyone who witnesses one of their energetic performances, will know that having fun and a great sense of humour are important to these guys. This has already caused a sensation
at many a festival like Folkwoods, EuroSonic, Noorderzon, De Parade or Oerol, and as​ well on reputed stages like Paradiso. But Cochon Bleu feel just as much at home in their  small favourite hangout​ Café Marleen as on big mega size stages.

The group's CDs take you from the starting point of pure cajun covers "Changez les Guitares" to recent albums filled with ​well executed​ originals like  "It's All Coming Good" and "Not Blue".
