The Sarah Savoy Band

From a legendary traditional music family from Louisiana we bring you The Sarah Savoy Band - guaranteed to conjure up images of smoky bars, dangerous men and women, beer and cigarettes, dance and the heady inspirational eras of Louisiana music. Born and raised in Eunice, Louisiana, in a family considered ‘Cajun royalty’, father, Marc, makes the Acadian brand accordion, considered to be the finest single-row diatonic in the world; mother, Ann, wrote the reference on Cajun music, ‘Cajun Music:, A Reflection of a People.’

Sarah is a certified chef and has been executive chef of three different restaurants in Paris, published a cookbook on Cajun food, ‘The Savoy Kitchen: A Family History of Cajun Food’ and has performed cooking demonstrations around the world, including the US, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, France and Morocco.

Playing music from the heart of Cajun country and damn fine too. Sarah Savoy has been referred to as a ‘Louisiana singer with hell-raising credentials’, singing and playing as multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, doing mostly traditional Cajun music, spiced with a fairly rough rock-n-roll attitude then toned back a bit by country ballads and blues, covers by Johnny Paycheck and George Jones, and then simmering all that down with some sexy Zydeco numbers.

From accordion to guitar to washboard or triangle, Sarah's vocal style has been compared to that of Patsy Cline, Patti Smith and Wanda Jackson, her musicians are all multi-instrumentalists as well and thoroughly enjoy switching around on stage.

She's also led conferences in both English and French on the history of Louisiana's francophones, the history of the accordion in Louisiana music, and Louisiana culture and folklore.
