Zachary Richard

1950 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Folk/Country, Rock

Singer, songwriter, and poet, the multi-talented Zachary Richard learned guitar and piano at a very early age, just so he could play along with his father. Fond of his home state of Louisiana, his interest in Cajun culture is evident in his music. Inspired by the musical styles of the region, he has travelled back and forth between France, Canada, and Louisiana consistently spreading the word about Francophone culture outside the Belle Province. The author of Travailler, c'est trop dur, his discography includes Mardi Gras, Cap Enragé, Last Kiss and the recently released Le fou.
