Crossing Canal features the duo guitars and sweet harmonic vocals of New Orleans-based singer-songwriters Ruby Ross and Patrick Cooper. We play original songs along with classic folk and country tunes with our own spin. Check out the 'SHOWS' page on this site for information on Crossing Canal shows (they will be noted as such in the calendar)! Also, check out our Facebook page at facebook.com/crossingcanalband.
Blato Zlato ("Golden Swamp" in Bulgarian) is a New Orleans-based conglomeration of vocal trio Pyeya and instrumental trio G-String Orchestra. We play Balkan and other Eastern European folk and composed music. Recent appearances include a performance at the Marigny Opera House's 2015 Mardi Gras Ball and a set at the 2015 Zlatne Uste Golden Festival in NY.
Pyeya is a New Orleans-based vocal world music trio specializing in 3-part harmony from the Balkans and elsewhere (including Russia, Georgia, Corsica and Ireland). Although currently on hiatus while one member attends graduate school in California, we love singing together and try to do impromptu performances whenever travel and visits allow it. Until you can catch us live, please visit our bandcamp page to take a listen!
