Cedric Watson and Bijou Creole

Feb. 19 Cedric Watson and Bijou Creole Holland Center Scott Recital Hall, 1200 Douglas St. 8 p.m., $25, 345.0606, ticketomaha.com The upbeat, soaring blues-inflected vocals, fiddling and accordion of multi-instrumentalist Cedric Watson and his band are the perfect warm escape from the cold, and a foreshadowing of spring. Nominated twice for Grammys, the 27-year-old Texas-born, Louisiana transplant Watson plays a variety of old-school folk, original material and Creole traditions, and polyrhythmic sounds of Africa and the Caribbean to top the evening. His creative style and evident elation in playing are said to make him an engaging and exciting performer who moves with ease and playfulness between instruments.
