Valcour Records’ Joel Savoy has been at the forefront of the roots music scene in Acadiana since his teens and as a result he has become part of a growing community of young musicians across the country who are asking for more out of their radio than commercial stations provide. On his new release, he offers a view into Acadiana’s own vintage country scene, showcasing the incredible talents of many of his peers who are oftentimes associated more with the dominant tradition in the area, Cajun music. Anna Laura Edmiston (Feufollet), Courtney Granger (Pine Leaf Boys), Kelli Jones-Savoy (Feufollet), and Linzay Young (Red Stick Ramblers) are just a few of the singers “sitting in” with the all-star band on this album and they’re sure to have you dusting off your cowboy boots and stepping back into a simpler, twangy-er time. Released in 2013, 11 tracks.
