Bunkhouse Boys

Bunkhouse Boys evolved during many weeks at Ashokan Fiddle and Dance Camp. Mark Sagar is an awesome Blues guitar player who brings an infectious sense of rhythm to Laren's accordion and my fiddle playing. We all share a love of Cajun and Creole music and have a great time playing together.

Musical Projects


        Zydegroove is a New York based zydeco band with one prime directive — to deliver the most irresistible dance grooves possible. Their signature country zydeco sound along with an unchained performance style sets this band in a category of it’s own.  Started by Laren Droll on accordion, Zydegroove has been brewing for many years and has coalesced around a remarkable group of fine musicians who love rhythm and love to zydeco.

Krewe de la Rue

 The core of this hot Cajun dance band is Laren Droll on accordion and vocals, Buffy Lewis on guitar and vocals and Maggie McManus on triangle.  The Krewe plays a tradional blend of Cajun and Creole tunes that have made the band a favorite in the Northeast.

Cleoma's Ghost

Buffy and I have been playing Cajun music together for many years. Our music has taken us to many wonderful places. We continue to evolve and grow together as musicians.
