MAGNOLIA-byJillianJohnsonWEB

magnolia sisters


The Magnolia Sisters is a band of women who can play the whole gamut of musical styles from southwest Louisiana: Cajun, Creole, dancehall favorites, and front porch ballads. In addition to their dancehall repertoire they tell stories, sing rich harmonies on unaccompanied ballads, and play string band numbers from the 1930ʼs.

Whatever style they approach, they bring a freshness and vitality to the music. A musical evening with Magnolia Sisters is a fun and enriching experience as they explain the meanings of the songs, move between accordion two-steps, twin fiddle tunes, heavy bass Creole hits, dancehall standards and unaccompanied songs.
