Dennis Stroughmatt (fiddle, accordion, vocals) makes a stop at the Iron Post, just in time to kick off the weekend before Mardi Gras.  From Albion IL, Dennis leads three national touring bands (Creole Stomp, L’Esprit Creole and the Tribute to Ray Price country band), and has played many top-notch venues and festivals including the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Kennedy Center, Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.  A gifted vocalist, Dennis has also studied with several fiddle and accordion masters to learn the subtleties and spirit of Cajun and Creole music.  For this gig Dennis will be joined by Doug Hawf (guitar, fiddle), Doug Rigsby (drums) and local musician Rob Krumm (bass, accordion, guitar) and the music will include Cajun, Zydeco, Creole, swing, blues and some traditional country.
