Swampweed has been together for 8 years and features Ehren Oncken on Cajun Button accordion – raised in a German family polka band local to Hermann. The very ornery Jimmy Joe Culbertson is on drums, triangle and his own special creation “The Washtar” – and has toured nationally playing rock, blues and Cajun. Dierik Leonhard is on fiddle and vocals while Jane Accurso carries the lead French vocals and guitar – & these two have played together for 18 years. Matthew Bossaler drives the dance rhythm on bass – and has played rockabilly, rock and bluegrass for 20 plus years. Expect lots of lively dance tunes honoring the Balfa brothers, Dennis McGee, Canray Fontenot, Amede Ardoin, Cheese Reed and many others. AAaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeee!
