Magnolia SistersThe Magnolia Sisters play the music of southwestern Louisiana, from dancehall Cajun to primitive Creole, from house music to front porch ballads, all with eloquence, energy, and flair. The quartet features Ann Savoy of the Savoy-Doucet Band and the Savoy Family Band on accordion, fiddle, and guitar, Jane Vidrine on fiddle and guitar, Lisa Trahan on bass and accordion, and Anya Burgess on guitar and fiddle. “Women’s voices in harmony, hitting the chords that haven’t been heard in Cajun music before” – that’s how Jane describes the band’s sound. The Boston Globe puts it this way: “Ageless music performed with ease and pleasure.” And here’s what Billboard Magazine has to say: “These ladies are not only gifted musicians but trusted folklorists who are keeping their traditions alive.”

Tonight the band is celebrating the release of a brand new album, Love’s Lies, on Arhoolie Records. Their previous album, Stripped Down, received a Grammy nomination for Best Cajun/Zydeco Album. In concert, the Magnolia Sisters bring out the joy, grief, longing, and passion at the heart of classics and forgotten gems that they’ve learned from Creole masters like Canray Fontenot and Preston Frank. “We take beautiful and long-lost songs from old collections and sweep off the cobwebs to bring them back in all their richness,” the band says on their website. Whether you have cobwebs to shake off or not, chances are you’ll love the soulful Louisiana sounds of the Magnolia Sisters!
