Les Frères Michot play Bach Lunch today at Parc Sans Souci. The Brother Michot began playing as a live band in 1986, espousing and carousing the traditional aesthetics of the all-acoustic “bal de maison” (house dance) style of Cajun music that was prevalent before the advent of electric amplification. The Michots collective goal is to preserve this style of Cajun music. They use no drums or electric instruments, and their music has a strong vocal component with all lyrics in French. Their Instrumentation includes fiddle, accordion, ptit fer (basse triang), acoustic guitar, and contrebasse.
Les Frères Michot kick off Bach Lunch around 11:30 at Parc Sans Souci. Agave Cantina, Hub City Diner, and Edie's Resturant are the event's sponsors.
