Today we are joined by royalty. Corey Ledet’s family has been at the forefront of jazz, bebop, blues, & zydeco from the beginning. His grandfather, Buchanon, is known as the originator of the double clutch drum pattern that defines zydeco. Corey started in his grandfather’s footsteps, as a drummer, playing professionally by the ripe old age of ten. But things really started to click when he took up the accordion.
One of Corey’s albums was nominated for a Grammy (I think the only reason it didn’t win was because Corey forgot to vote for himself). He has just released the 14th album of the band’s 18th year career. Follow Corey Ledet for information about the music. Buy the new album, Corey Ledet Zydeco wherever you normally buy music.
