Pointe Noir Cajun Band in Marshfield Gazebo Concert Series!

July 13, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Come to the gazebo on the Old Schoolhouse Common for some rocking rhythms of Cajun music! Bring a chair or a blanket to picnic on.
Pointe Noir finds its rhythm deeply seated in Southwest Louisiana, where many of its members have studied and learned Cajun music. Katie Trautz is a seasoned fiddle player, who drifted south to the Bayou after many years of playing Old-time music. Chris Hollis, the Montpelier-based old-time guitar player, also found an interest in Cajun music, and together he and Katie traveled to Louisiana to learn the musical traditions there. Cannon Labrie is a long-time Cajun and Zydeco accordion player, playing with well-known New England bands Yankee Chank, Jeannie and the High Tops and Planet Zydeco.

Walker Blackwell is a percussionist and fine art printmaker who has been surrounded by cajun music his entire life and has been performing percussion in several local bands – including the Clayfoot Strutters – on and off since he was 4 years old. Christiana Athena-Blackwell is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator. She started singing and drumming in bands in Vermont when she was 14 years old, and continued her performing career for the past 2 decades. Pointe Noir plays an uplifting combination of exciting dance music, country songs, and Cajun tunes from Lafayette and beyond.
