GRAMMY Award winner and three-time Levitt performer Terrance Simien brings a vibrant splash of New Orleans culture to Utica.

An eighth-generation Louisiana Creole, Simien taught himself to play accordion while still in his teens. As one of the most respected and accomplished artists in American roots music, Simien is internationally renowned for his grooving combination of New Orleans funk, reggae, blues and zydeco. His music was featured in several feature films, including The Princess and the Frog, The Big Easy, Exit to Eden and A Murder of Crows.

Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience has performed in more than 40 countries, sharing studios and stages with such artists as Paul Simon, Dave Matthews, Marcia Ball and Stevie Wonder. In 2007, Simien and his wife Cynthia, who is also his business partner, helped establish a new GRAMMY voting category—Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album. The following year, Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience won the first GRAMMY ever awarded in that category. Simien has performed at Levitt Pavilion Arlington, Levitt Shell Memphis and Levitt Pavilion Westport.
