Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience
Approximate Run-time: 80-90 minutes with no intermission
Since 1981, two time GRAMMY® award-winning artist Terrance Simien has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is—and is not. Leading his 5 piece, highly-skilled, and well-traveled Zydeco Experience band, Simien has become one of the most respected and accomplished artists in American roots music today. He and his band mates have performed over 7500 concerts and toured millions of miles to over 45 countries during their eventful career.
2016 marked Simien’s 30th consecutive performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival—the gold standard for showcasing and celebrating Louisiana music alongside more mainstream popular music. In 2014 Simien and his band mates garnered their second GRAMMY Award for “Dockside Sessions” produced by George Receli, Bob Dylan’s long time drummer.
