Cajun night at Holders tonight
After two nights of cabaret on the classic Holders House Gallery, the action of the 2015 Holders Season moved last night to the breathtaking Holders Garden Theatre –– and continues there tonight.
Tonight, Cajun music and culture will literally take over the Holders Theatre. It will be an evening of infectious traditional music from Louisiana, with some great samples of Cajun delicacies to match!
The evening of Cajun music and food will be presented by the Savoy Family, considered to be the first family of Cajun music. Despite having played on some of the biggest stages in the world, they know that Cajun’s true spirit is more likely to be found at the jam sessions back at their famous Savoy Music Centre near Eunice, Louisiana; and this is what they will be bring to Holders.
Cajun Night will also feature the Barbadian a cappella group G-Syndicate perfectly blending reggae, spouge, son montuno and soca with jazz. Comprising famous and acclaimed Barbadian singers, G-Syndicate is a Caribbean pop, jazz vocal group, and Barbados’ premier a cappella group.
Inspired by leading vocal groups ranging from Take 6 and Naturally 7 to Boyz II Men and Committed, the group is able to take almost any song and transform it into the a cappella styling they love, using a process they call “Syndication”.
Tonight, patrons would have been treated to The Music Of Hollywood РР Songs On Film by award-winning pianist, singer, songwriter and film buff Joe Stilgoe. Joe, with his trio, will have paid tribute to 100 years of Hollywood cinema and the film music that shaped his own musical life.
Beginning with The Jungle Book and charting a course through the most memorable moments of music in film, Joe –– joined by the massively talented Ben Reynolds (drums) and Thomas Farmer (bass) –– will have recreated the perfect afternoon at the movies.
The musical presentations would range from jazz, classical and pop to world and folk.
