Lisa Haley and the Zydecats
Grammy nominated Lisa Haley and the Zydecats are one of the leading zydeco bands touring today, presenting progressive Louisiana music in Lisa’s own neo-traditional zydeco/cajun style. Bringing this roots music to a worldwide audience has taken this fourth-generation “Fiddlist” far beyond traditional zydeco. Lisa Haley is the protege of legendary Cajun accordionist Joe Simien, the King of Cajun. Lisa has recorded and/or toured with Sir George Martin (Beatles producer), Grammy-winning artists KebMo’, Queen Ida, Al Rapone, Randy Newman, Lyle Lovett, Taj Mahal and a host of others. Called the Mick Jagger of Zydeco, Lisa stands out as the most energetic violinist/vocalist in America today, igniting the spirits of Cajun/Zydeco, Americana, Jazz, Rock, and Folk fans. Lisa and her all star band have toured to over 20 countries.
