Hi folks, I spent this past weekend in Cherryfield, Maine at “Camp Zydecow”, a small but very enthusiastic Cajun/Zydeco music and dance weekend that is the brainchild of the amazing Su Peck. Where the heck is Cherryfield, Maine? (you might ask.) It’s a small village in “Downeast Maine” located on the Narraguagus River about 70 miles west of Bangor and 6 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The main industry is harvesting wild blueberries, though lobster fishing figures into the local economy as well.. Su’s original plan for the weekend got scuttled by Covid, but she ran it last year and it was SO successful she expanded the offering for 2022. This year there were about 100 attendees. The bands from New England were JimmyJo and the Jumbol’Ayuhs (my band) from Maine, Planet Zydeco from VT, and Magnolia Cajun band from Rhode Island.
