Surrey Fusion Festival 2011, Bruce Barnes & Mojo Zydeco French New Orleans Cajun Music From The Big Easy
At the Surrey Fusion Festival 2011 (July 16-17, 2011), Bruce Barnes and the Mojo Zydeco played French New Orleans tunes. Music has always been part of Barnes’s life, yet he had also been a professional footballer, naturalist, Hollywood actor, park ranger etc. Barnes formed different bands in the America South and performed in New Orleans, Louisiana, Texas among other places playing mostly Blues, Zydeco and Creole music. Since 2001, Bruce Barnes has been working with Mojo Zydeco, writing and performing his own unique blend of Cajun music, ballads of the French-speaking Acadians of Canada throughout BC and once again in Louisiana. As seen in this video, he played with a small accordion, but in truth he played seven musical instruments.
Listen to that sound makes you realize why they called New Orleans the Big Easy.
