Slattery & Stewart

Andy Stewart (fiddle) & Mary Jo Slattery (guitar, vocals, 'ti fer) perform music from several roots traditions, including the exuberant soulful two-steps & waltzes of Cajun Louisiana, the upbeat fiddle tunes of French Canada and New England, as well as blues and southern mountain ballads. Recognized by Louisiana's Cajun French Music Association for the authenticity of their style and repertoire, Mary Jo & Andy have performed in festivals, concert halls, farmers markets, schools, nursing homes and assisted living facilities from southwest Louisiana to northern New England...from Mexico and the Caribbean to northern Canada. When not performing as a duo, these two versatile musicians play with the NH Council on the Arts accredited Cajun band, The Offshore Aces. For some 25 years they played with the NH and VT based contra dance band Northern Spy, selected for inclusion in the Smithsonian Folkways CD on New Hampshire social dancing titled "Choose Your Partner!" Their latest exciting project is a trio called The Occasional Jug Band.
