Houston's Bayou Roux Set to Close French Roots Festival

Texas artists have a special rapport with European audiences. Anything rootsy is huge over there.

One such act is Bayou Roux, the contemporary-Cajun Houston ensemble that is set to close the Country Rondez-Vous Festival in Craponne, France this weekend (or Festival du musique Country Rondez-Vous). Close, as in headline -- Bayou Roux is the final act of the three-day event, and is scheduled to go on about 8:45 p.m. France time Sunday evening.

"They have some bluegrass, some French country, some Nashville acts," says Bayou Roux bassist Ted Lee.
