Pointe Noir finds its rhythm deeply seated in Southwest Louisiana, where many of its members have studied and learned Cajun music. Katie Trautz is a seasoned fiddle player, who drifted south to the Bayou after many years of playing Old-time music. Chris Hollis, the Montpelier-based old-time guitar player, also found an interest in Cajun music, and together he and Katie traveled to Louisiana to learn the musical traditions there. Cannon Labrie is a long-time Cajun and Zydeco accordion player. This summer Pointe Noir is joined by Andrew Stearns of the Burlington based Wild Leek River band. Pointe Noir's rhythm section includes Walker Blackwell, a percussionist who has been surrounded by Cajun music his entire life and has been performing percussion in several local bands on and off since he was 4 years old. Christiana Athena-Blackwell is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator. She started singing and drumming in bands in Vermont when she was 14 years old, and continued her performing career for the past 2 decades.
