Here you can find everything you've always wanted to know about Cochon Bleu, the most legendary cajun / folk / americana band that ever existed! (our own words, yes ...)

The four quirky musicians of Cochon Bleu have worked on their joint musical expressions for twenty years. After hundreds of performances and the release of six, more than well received albums, they have become what they are today - one of the Netherlands' most sparkling cajun / folk / americana bands. Powerful polyphonic vocals, accordion, guitars, mandolin, violin - basically anything with strings - those are the tools. Everything supported and held together by a very to the point rhythm section.

Pure cajun music was once the starting point, but while working and playing many other influences were absorbed, gradually developing a completely unique style. However, two things have remained: the French texts and the inexhaustible energy. This, combined with a very special sense of humor, means that every performance ends in an experience that is not easily forgotten.
