Sheryl Cormier and Cajun Sounds, Liberty Theater, Dec. 7, 2019
Sheryl Cormier and Cajun Sounds performed traditional Cajun music at the Liberty Theater Dec. 7, 2019. In addition to Sheryl Cormier, La Reine de Musique Cadjine, on accordion, the band included her husband, Russell Cormier, on vocals; Ricky Benoit on bass and two vocals; Chris Lougon on steel guitar; and Jimmy Breaux on drums. (I didn’t hear the name of the guitarist clearly—I believe it’s Michael Breaux.) In addition, Sheryl Cormier invited Adam Touchet, a regular at the Vermilionville jam sessions who was in the audience, to join the band for several songs on accordion.

Sheryl and Russell Cormier are receiving top billing for their appearance in England at the Gloucester Cajun & Zydeco Festival, Jan. 24-26, 2020:
