Creole Brothers 2014_web

A spiced up creole stew of the best
folk/roots melodeon led music from the seas and
woodlands of the British Isles, flavoured with the fiddle
and guitar driven melodies of the rivers and mountains of
Appalachia all the way down to the accordion pumping

Cajun and Creole Louisiana. Plus some of their original
delightful compositions to add pepper to the gumbo. All
delivered with their own wry humorous take on life, love
and music.
Charlie Skelton is one of the hottest roots

collected three international awards for his accordion
playing – and has played Creole music in the black clubs

driving rhythm guitar and keen vocals complement the
