This band leader ‘cut his teeth’ playing country music on the box guitar at the tender age of 13. Two years later, he fulfilled his burning desire to learn the accordion. By the age of 18, Horace Trahan debut his first album entitled, “Ossun Blues,” gaining recognition as one of the greatest Cajun albums to date.
Having travelled the world with the legendary D.L. Menard over the course of three years, this versatile accordion player with emotion-filled vocals, created his own band, known as Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express. By the year 2000, they had produced the hit single, “That Butt Thing,” taking the accordion music world by storm!
To this very day, you can appreciate Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express’ ability to deliver Southwest Louisiana music in the form of Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp Pop, Rock n Roll, Country, and even Reggae! Like the titles of their current albums, you will be moved to “Keep Walking,’’ “All The Way,” “Until The End!” So don’t stop the music, and let the good times roll!
