Magnolia has been playing Cajun music in New England for more than twenty years. Learning from Louisiana's finest, they are known far and wide as Rhode Island's own Cajun band. Their monthly Saturday night dance has been a mainstay in New England for more than two decades. Their dance lessons and music have helped build a strong sense of community at festivals and fais-do-dos all over the Northeast.

Playing high energy two-steps and sultry waltzes, the band's twin fiddles, accordion, guitar, bass, percussion, and of course rich vocals in Cajun French, keep audiences on their feet long into the night.
