Cedric Watson plays a variety of old-school zydeco styles, original material, and Creole traditionals.
The polyrhythmic and syncopated sounds of Africa and the Caribbean echo in his ensemble. He plays old La-La French music (traditional Creole music) in accordion, fiddle, and guitar with mentors Edward Poullard and James Adams in Les Amis Creole. With accordionist Corey “Lil’ Pop” Ledet, he displays the more blues and R&B influence of Clifton Chenier, John Delafose, Canray Fontenot, Beau Jocque (Andrus Espree ) and Bebe Carrier.
"Cedric’s creative style and obvious joy in playing make him an engaging and exciting performer. Moving with ease between fiddle and accordion, his natural playfulness on stage makes him just plain fun to watch."
