Cleoma’s Ghost is a Cajun Duo who play traditional and old-time fiddle-based Cajun music. They have been crafting their musical style together over the past 12 years. Originally they performed as part of a larger dance-hall band and then, realizing they shared a similar musical vision, distilled their sound into the current incarnation of Cleoma’s Ghost. Their energy, passion and drive can be felt in their music whether on the dance floor, at a house dance, in a theater or in the intimacy of a white table clothed restaurant. One of the consistent comments they have gotten over the years is about how much sound, energy and joie de vivre two people can conjure in an evening or afternoon of performing. The music speaks for itself, clearly Cleoma’s Ghost loves what they do.
Buffy Lewis: guitar and vocals. Buffy’s driving guitar style is the backbone of Cleoma’s Ghost and she was a nominee in 2005 for the Cajun French Music Association’s award for Best Female Cajun Vocalist. Buffy is also a dynamic instructor of the traditional Cajun dances. She even gets the most reluctant participants up and having fun on the dance floor.
Roger Weiss: fiddle and vocals
Roger’s fiddle style has emerged into a complex blend of Creole and Cajun styles. His fiddle playing is heartfelt and very traditionally Cajun, a spicy blend of influences from mentors he has studied with down on the bayou over the years.
