Melbourne’s own ‘Johnny Can’t Dance’ Cajun Trio, one of Australia’s leading Cajun/Creole music ensembles and dedicated practitioners of the tradition dance and social music of Rural Southwest Louisiana and East Texas.


Sean Manning has a guitar technique that is a pretty unique combination of the Clawhammer folk style his dad taught him and the Travis picking Technique of Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel. Sean applies this technique to Country, Folk and Blues standards from the ‘40’s to the present day.

As a songwriter, Sean is influenced by Alt Country/Americana artists like Townes Van Zandt and Gillian Welch, vocally he adopts the gun barrel straight baritone delivery of Johnny Cash and Ernest Tubb.
