For 35 years, two-time GRAMMY award winning artist Terrance Simien, an 8th generation Louisiana Creole, has been shattering myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is – and is not. Leading his Zydeco Experience bandmates – long time members Danny Williams, Stan Chambers, Curtis Watson, Lance Ellis and Kevin Menard – Simien has become one of the most respected and accomplished artists in American roots music today. He and his bandmates have performed more than 8,500 concerts and have toured millions of miles to 45 countries during their eventful career.
2018 marked Simien’s 33rd consecutive New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – the gold standard for diversity in American roots music.
Concerts take place on eight consecutive Sunday evenings, June 9 – July 28 at the Scioto Park Amphitheater, 7377 Riverside Drive, in Dublin. All concerts begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at approximately 8:30 p.m. Dinner and dessert will be available for purchase from Creole 2 Geaux food truck and Dell’s Homemade Ice Creams.
Join us for a free pre-performance cultural insights conversation and “instrument petting zoo” with Terrance at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., just blocks from the park. The pre-concert activities will begin at 5 p.m.
This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group.
