  • -  Cedric Watson is one of the brightest contemporary talents to emerge in Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music over the last decade. Watson was born in 1983 and grew up in San Felipe, Texas, surrounded by the blues, old soul, country and zydeco music. Though hip-hop was then popular with his peers, he developed an affinity for the old-style French songs of Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. Watson soon found himself in Lafayette, Louisiana, where he became part of the musical community and began contributing to the continuity of Creole music, quickly immersing himself in French music and language. Over the next several years, Watson performed French music in 17 countries with various groups, including Corey Ledet, Les Amis Creole with Ed Poullard and J.B. Adams, and the Pine Leaf Boys. With this last group he added a Creole and Zydeco foundation to their Southwest Louisiana sound. He has played with some of the great names in Creole music, including Dexter Ardoin and the Creole Ramblers and Jeffrey Broussard and the Creole Cowboys. Watson continues to explore the roots of Louisiana's Creole music with his own band, Bijou Creole. His creative style and obvious joy in playing make him an engaging and exciting performer.
