Welcome

Rough Chowder are a Cajun music band from the UK. Fronted by husband and wife, Ian McIlroy and Miss Kitty, Rough Chowder combine traditional Cajun and Zydeco music with their own original material, to produce a highly danceable and infectious sound guaranteed to transport you to the bayous of Louisiana.

Cajun music is dance music, whether played in the dancehall, on the back porch or in a field during Mardi Gras. It’s a music that transcends the ages, with the youngsters being transfixed by the flame haired lady playing the washboard and a tempo that dares you to stick to the spot and not grab a dance partner. Rough Chowder will take you on a transatlantic journey with the beautiful melodies of the accordion and fiddle playing the Cajun two step and waltz mixed with their foot stomping swamp blues and Zydeco.
Rough Chowder play all over the UK and Europe at Cajun and Zydeco festivals, Folk and Americana festivals as well as pubs and dances.
