Week 5: Sept. 12
Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience
For 36 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 long-time Zydeco Experience bandmates, 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. Simien has performed for more than 30 times for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – the gold standard for diversity in American roots music. He returns to Sundays at Scioto as the “Peoples’ Choice” from 2019.
Get to know them virtually before they perform in Dublin in 2021!
