Two Cajuns and an old time stringband walk into a bar…”Spanning generations from across the nation the Cajun Country Revival is a veritable supergroup of American roots musicians. Comprised of Cajun musicians Jesse Lége and Joel Savoy and Portland Oregon’s Foghorn Stringband, this group presents a music that seems to embody all of the things that make life wonderful and together they’ve delighted audiences around the world celebrating rather than “performing" the music that brought them together: Cajun music and early Country music. Son of Cajun music royalty Marc and Ann and the founder of the Louisiana-based label Valcour Records, Joel Savoy is a GRAMMY winner for his production work with The Band Courtbouillon and a nine-time GRAMMY nominee, as well as a two-time winner of the Cajun French Music Association’s Fiddler of the Year Award. Credited for igniting the Old Time Renaissance in Northwest, the Foghorn Stringband continues to stand out as the shining gold standard for American Stringband music. With their 8th album, Devil in the Seat in hand, thousands of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it’s no surprise that this band, as proclaimed by Stuart Mason, The Fiddle Freak, "has blossomed into a full-blown force of nature that threatens world domination." Through all of this, they’ve never let the music grow cold; instead Foghorn has been steadily proving that American Roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.

Singer-songwriter Caroline Savoie’s new album “Pourchasser l'aube” was released today and goes on sale at the start of February. This second album’s 11 songs offer an emotional, poetic and intimate journey that delves straight into the heart of this extraordinary artist's soul during a time of struggle. Back on her feet and in full form, the Acadian artist tackles sensitive and personal subjects head-on, such as the depression she overcame, and her fears, doubts and disappointments, all with remarkable finesse. Blessed with a rare lucidity and authenticity, Caroline Savoie deftly infuses her songs with a constant ray of hope. “Pourchasser l’aube” is an allegory for new beginnings, renewal and rebirth. It is the calm after the storm, peace restored.
