Echoing the Creole Past, Charting Zydeco’s Future - Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys play the Iron Horse this Friday, January 7th.

Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys features the accordion mastery and soulful vocals of front man Jeffery Broussard from the legendary band Zydeco Force.  The band delivers great, pack-the-floor renditions of Creole classics as well as their own brand of contemporary Zydeco. Early Creole music, as played by legends Canray Fontenot on fiddle and Jeffery’s father, accordion player Delton Broussard, is experiencing a well-deserved resurgence of interest in Louisiana today.  Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys are taking the next generation’s perspective of this music and presenting it with contemporary flair and expertise. They create incredible music and outstanding performances, cultivating and inspiring new generations of Creole zydeco fans. Renowned local Zydeco dance instructor Larry Kaufman will conduct a dance lesson at 6:30 so everyone who's inclined to shake their tailfeathers should feel welcome to do so. 

Tickets for Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys on Friday, January 7th at 7PM at the Iron Horse in Northampton are available at Northampton Box Office, 413-586-8686, and online at
