Dennis Stroughmatt et L’Esprit Creole

Friday, January 24,
7 p.m.
Maddox Theatre, Clark Arts Center

Fingers and bow flying, Dennis Stroughmatt takes listeners on a musical odyssey not so different than from his own musical journeys into Upper Louisiana Creole culture. Taught to play fiddle by local Creole fiddlers living along the Mississippi River near St. Louis, Dennis is now the authority on this regional pocket of American antiquity. A vibrant blend of Celtic, Canadian and Old Time sounds, this unique music bridges gaps between contemporary Canadian and Louisiana Cajun styles. Preserved by families in the Ozark foothills, the music remains largely intact and true to the traditions that have been passed down over three centuries.
