Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic
Nominated for a Best Regional Roots Music Grammy in 2012 and winner of the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame “Best Zydeco Group” Award in 2012, Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic will get your feet moving all night long. Dust off your dancing shoes, and come get cozy with these down-home artists and upbeat grooves.
Thierry’s career started at the age of three, when the “King of Zydeco,” the late Clifton Chenier deemed him a future accordion heavy-hitter. Blending a love of traditional Zydeco with a deeply rooted French Creole heritage, Thierry’s original music masterfully combines old and new. The Washington Post dubbed Andre a “master at pumping out fast, funky rhythms on an instrument not usually associated with earthy syncopation,” and described their sound as, “both soulful, traditional slow-dances and bottom-end-booming kinetic groovers.”
