Lil' Orphans has been performing traditional and original Cajun and Creole music from south Louisiana, and beyond, for over 25 years. Led by New Orleans native Pete Simoneaux on fiddle and vocals, and spouse/partner Linda Simoneaux on button accordion and vocals, Lil' Orphans typically performs in an acoustic setting, ranging from a fiddle/accordion duo, to a 4 - 5 piece band, augmented by acoustic guitar, bass, drums or percussion. Peter & Linda have shared the stage with many notable artists, including Beausoleil, Savoy Doucet, C.J. Chenier, Mamou Playboys, Buckwheat Zydeco, and others. In 2011, they released their debut CD, Big Powerful Woman, under the name of their fully electrified band, Lil' Orphans Cajun Express, more recently rechristened Bayou X.
