Ensemble Dans Ce Bateau Nashville Tn says
Join JP Harris, the folks behind acclaimed boutique music and cultural festival Wildwood Revival, and The Americana Music Association on Sunday, April 10th for "Ensemble Dans Ce Bateau," an evening of authentic Cajun music and food hosted at The Cordelle in Nashville, Tennessee. Ensemble boasts a Louisiana hand-harvested menu and musical collaborations between renowned Cajun musicians and Nashville's finest players and singers.

Musical guests include Grammy Award-Winning Joel and Kelli Savoy (Eunice, LA), Langhorne Slim, J.P. Harris, The Watson Twins, and Sam Doores and Riley Downing of The Deslondes.

For many decades now, musicians from around the globe have made the pilgrimage to South Louisiana to see, hear, and taste what lies beneath the veneer of fleur-de-lis souvenirs and Mardi Gras beads; the many who have found it leave changed, and they don't stay away long. Such is the story of Ensemble's food and music curator JP Harris; being swept away by the music and hospitality of a group of Cajuns met at a fiddler's convention in West Virginia, Harris' first trip to Louisiana turned into long, familial friendships, forged over the exchange of traditional music and boiling pots. Food and music, always the binding forces of the Cajun and Creole communities.

"Ensemble Dans Ce Bateau" ("Together In This Boat") is a celebration of not just Acadian culture, but also of independent, traditionally-influenced music and food cultures re-emerging across America. By melding music and food, pairing Cajun musicians with Nashville staples, Ensemble is a unique view of the relationships between new and old, tradition and innovation.

Musical guests include Grammy Award-Winning Joel and Kelli Savoy (Eunice, LA), Langhorne Slim, JP Harris, The Watson Twins, and Sam Doores and Riley Downing of The Deslondes.

Boasting a gourmet-yet-traditional menu designed and prepared by Acadiana native Effie Jeanne-Marie Michot, with most ingredients grown (or fished or trapped) in Louisiana, there is no more authentic way to experience a real Cajun meal anywhere near middle Tennessee.
