Thanks to Dorothy Brown Photography (“Small stories from real life”) for posting this collection of photos of Bay Area zydeco Andre Thierry and band from a Mardi Gras party (about a month early) at the St. Finn Barr Church in San Francisco.  Zydeco music is part of a cultural matrix, of family, community, church, and more.  As she says “Zydeco: It’s good for you!”  For more on zydeco in northern California, see Mark DeWitt’s book Cajun and Zydeco Dance Music in Northern California: Modern Pleasures in a Postmodern World, University Press of Mississippi, 2008.
