Keith Frank & Soileau Zydeco

Mar 18, 2023

10:30pm – 11:40pm CT


One of the leading lights of the "nouveau zydeco" movement, accordionist Keith Frank -- the son of zydeco great Preston Frank -- fused the traditional sound of his father's generation with latter-day influences ranging from James Brown to Bob Marley to forge his own urbanized and infectiously danceable style. Born in Soileau, Louisiana, Frank began playing professionally at the age of four, sitting in on a variety of instruments with his father's combo the Family Zydeco Band. Frank has been recording for over 30 years with his debut album What’s His Name? being issued in 1994. He has since released over 40 projects and remains a prolific touring and recording force in the zydeco world.
