2023 Festival Performer

Jourdan Thibodeaux & Les Rodailleurs

Jourdan Thibodeaux is the guy you picture when someone says the word “authentic.” Straight from the blackjack boggy woods of Cypress Island, Louisiana, Jourdan is one of only a small number of young people speaking Cajun French today, and his soulful singing and fiddling are the perfect medium for his ever-growing repertoire of original Louisiana French songs. Jourdan has been called “the future of cajun music” by Acadiana Profile Magazine.

After taking the Louisiana music scene by storm in 2018, Jourdan Thibodeaux et Les Rôdailleurs (https://lostbuffaloartists.com/jourdan-thibodeaux-et-les-rodailleurs) have developed a reputation for pairing ancient traditions with incomparable energy. Preserving a culture while pioneering its advancement, Grammy Award winning and nominated musicians Chris Stafford, Blake Miller, and Alan Lafleur, join Adam Cormier in bringing Jourdan’s stories to life.
