Formed in 2019, Poisson Rouge is a Lafayette, LA-based band that seamlessly blends the old-style Cajun sound with contemporary influences. At the helm is singer-songwriter and accordionist Kylie Griffin, whose heartfelt French lyrics create a captivating and unique breed of Cajun music. What sets Poisson Rouge apart is their dedication to educating audiences about Louisiana culture, with half of the band members being music educators themselves. With pride in their Louisiana roots, Poisson Rouge is boldly redefining the landscape of Cajun music.
As a band and music educators, we go beyond performing on stage; we strongly believe in bringing Louisiana's music into our classrooms. Through educational initiatives, such as our summer music camps, and the creation of student led Cajun & Zydeco ensembles, we strive to inspire and educate young people, providing them with opportunities to explore and perform the rich musical traditions of our beloved state of Louisiana.
