Cajun with Downeast accent on tap at coffee house


NEW GLOUCESTER — Jimmy Jo & the Jumbol’Ayhs,  offering a mix of cajun music with a Downeast twist, will appear at the Village Coffee House, located at the New Gloucester Congregational Church, 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 3. Tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $5 for children and seniors.

This group, hailing from the “bayous” of coastal Maine, is based in Phippsburg. The band serves up music from Cajun Louisiana with a Downeast accent. Featuring Jim Joseph on accordion, second fiddle, and vocals, and Pam Weeks on lead fiddle and vocals, the Jumbol’Ayuhs play lively two-steps and waltzes that tug at your heartstrings.
