The Twa Tams Perth
Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, MARDI GRAS. It’s all the same thing.
The Twa Tams will be throwing a proper Louisiana Cajun Mardi Gras party to celebrate the occasion, with Cajun music, Cajun food and Cajun fun.
Cajun music of various flavours from Perth based Cajun Country, the legendary Bugaloosa from Dundee and the extraordinary Jennifer Ewan Band from Edinburgh.
Fancy dress is encouraged, with a prize for the best. The tradition is to dress as fantastic birds and animals, disguise to allow role reversal and to satirise political and royal figures. What an opportunity!
With Bugaloosa celebrating their 30 th birthday this year, John Martin (Zut! La Chute…, Boucherie and Ireland’s Maimin Cajun Band) passing 35 years of Cajun fiddling and singing, and Kim Tebble (Deaf Heights Cajun Aces, The Tuberians) among Scotland’s very first Cajun musicians of the early 70s, the history of Cajun music in Scotland is well represented.
The flavour doesn’t stop there. There’s a great menu of Cajun food specially designed for the night.
Free entry. Food from 4, music from 6.
