The Jennifer Ewan Band perform a stirring mix of compelling original songs and old-time Cajun dance music with a Celtic tint.

The band comprises singer-songwriter Jennifer Ewan, accordionist Kim Tebble (Deaf Heights Cajun Aces) and bassist Iain MacFadyen (Delta Croft Revue).

Jen’s rich and distinctive voice is a link between Scottish song traditions and American country music from Appalachia to Louisiana to Texas. Scots-Cajun mid-tempo personal ballads are grounded in the grooves of Cajun dance music and the unusual interplay of accordion, acoustic guitar and bass.

The band has appeared on BBC at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Celtic Connections at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and BBC Radio Scotland’s “The Janice Forsyth Show”. In 2017, they brought their show, Bonnie Bayou, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, performing to sell out audiences throughout their twelve-night run.
