Rosie Ledet & the Zydeco Playboys
Rosie Ledet born in Church Point, Louisiana, is an American Creole Zydeco accordion player and singer. Her songs are known for their sultry and suggestive lyrics. She tours and records with her band, the Zydeco Playboys. Raised in rural Louisiana, Ledet listened to rock music in her youth. Although she was in an environment where zydeco was heard, she took little interest in the music at the time. She first became fascinated with zydeco music when she was 16 years old. She attended a zydeco dance at Richard's, a famous zydeco club in Lawtell, Louisiana, and saw Boozoo Chavis play, which inspired her to start learning to play zydeco.
