Lambeth Live Hits The Road July 17 With The Revelers At Ashland Coffee & Tea
Lambeth Live is hitting the road July 17, as we head down to Ashland Coffee & Tea for a special live concert broadcast of Louisiana’s finest modern day Cajun/swamp pop band The Revelers! While we strongly encourage you to make it down to be part of the studio audience, you can of course listen at 91.1 FM around Charlottesville, 102.9 FM in Richmond, and streaming everywhere at wtju.net!
The Revelers, founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys… “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance” have joined together to form a Louisiana Supergroup which combines Swamp-Pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music that could only come from Southwest Louisiana.
As individuals, they are each in high demand having performed and recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Mouton, Mamadou Diabate, the Duhks, Cedric Watson, and Tim O’Brien to name a few. As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together. They have all appeared on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and they also were handpicked by David Simon (producer/creator The Wire) to be featured musicians for the third and fourth seasons of HBO’s Treme.
Equally at home on a festival main stage, a late night dance party, or a performing arts hall, the Revelers have taken their mission coast to coast in the US and around the word from Ireland to Denmark, to their own Black Pot Festival in Lafayette (now in its 10th year) The sheer power and raucousness of the band’s sound is tempered only by their unbelievable tightness as a group. They are currently touring behind their latest release, Get Ready.
