As the UK’s one third of the internationally-renowned, award-winning Cajun band ‘The Cajun Roosters’, Chris Hall and Hazel Scott are no strangers to the international stage.
They’ve headlined at major festivals worldwide, including in Denmark, Germany, UK, Holland, Luxembourg, Poland, France, Ireland, USA (where they appeared on local television/radio from the Eunice Liberty Theatre, LA), and recently to the International ‘SIM Fest’ in Indonesia.
In addition, the two have done several tours with Grammy award winners (Steve Riley) and completed several internationally produced CDs as well as various session-work projects. They have appeared in the internationally distributed programmes ZingZillas (BBC TV) and the Mark Lamarr Show (BBC Radio 2).
Although rooted in that back-porch sound of Louisiana, they mix them ol’ Cajun blues sounds with a little touch of Scots-Celtic soul and a large dose of sunny favourites ranging from Kate Rusby through Bob Dylan and Van Morrison to the good ol’ lively sounds of Johnny Cash–all with a touch of Cajun-hot-sauce attitude for an authentic new ‘Bayou-Brit’ sound that may surprise but definitely delight!
