Get Off the Grid Fest welcomes Bayou Diesel! This band has been fanning the flames of Louisiana-style music in the mountains of western North Carolina since 2002. Their rockin’ brand of Cajun and zydeco, “like snapping beans” has been appreciated and danced to from Merle Fest in Wilkesboro to The French Broad River Festival in Hot Springs and just about every place in between. Guided by accordionist Steve Burnside the group takes the dance tent stage around 8pm on Friday night August 9th immediately following Deborah Swanson’s instruction in the art and steps of Cajun and zydeco dance. Check out their music and events on Bayou Diesel’s Facebook page.
