The Savoy Family Cajun Band hails from Eunice, Louisiana, and they have been aptly named the “First Family of Cajun Music.” Patriarch Marc Savoy, a National Heritage Fellowship recipient, has been playing Cajun music around the world and building Cajun accordions since the early 1960s while his wife Ann Savoy has literally written the book on Cajun music and produced numerous renowned recording projects with the likes of Linda Ronstadt, T-Bone Burnett and more. Their sons Joel and Wilson are movers and shakers in their own rights, each touring extensively with their own musical projects and sharing a GRAMMY Award in 2012 for Joel’s production on his Valcour Records label of the Band Courtbouillon which features Wilson’s fiddling. Together the Savoy Family Cajun Band is known for delivering hardcore traditional Cajun music, and while they “ain’t no stuffy preservationalists,” they represent their culture with deep knowledge and love of tradition.

The Winston Band is a unique Montréal rock band with distinct Zydeco, Cajun and French-Canadian influences. Inspired by different music from French-speaking America, the quintet seamlessly blends cultures and eras to create an "original" sound that looks to the roots it has chosen but also to a more national stage. Its repertoire includes many new compositions as well as traditional pieces from Louisiana, Quebec and elsewhere. The powerful sound of the diatonic accordion, backed by the typical "new zydeco" instruments, electrifies audiences and gets them on their feet, while creating a welcoming and festive atmosphere.

After the release of their bilingual EP Folio, in 2012, the Hay Babies were touring extensively, slowly building up to their debut album: Mon Homesick Heart is an indie-folk-country album full of sincerity that came to be with a little help from François Lafontaine and Mathieu Parisien (Karkwa), Joe Grass and Mishka Stein (Patrick Watson) as well as José Major (Marie-Pierre Arthur) and Mico Roy (Les Hôtesses d’Hilaire). In 2016’s La 4ième dimension (version longue), there isn’t a single country song. There are, of course, the Joan Baez-folk song and another bluesy one. Beyond that, it’s all 60s-70s rock and 80s ballads, with hints of instrumentals, grunge and psychedelic.

Formed in 1993, the band has released three albums: Les Méchants Maquereaux (1994), Marifishmas (1997) and Les tracks perdues (2006). Through its high-energy performances, Méchants Maquereaux has built up a loyal audience throughout the Maritimes. With a repertoire of original songs and traditional music, one of the group's strengths is undoubtedly its ability to breathe new life into long-forgotten songs. Some have even become classics, such as "Les 12 jours de Noël" and "Acadie de nos cœurs", which was recorded by the group in the spring and was chosen as the anthem for the first Congrès mondial acadien in 1994. The group also helped compose and record the 1999 CMA theme song "Si longtemps séparé" with Waylon Thibodeaux. Now, 25 years after their performance at the first CMA, they are back from the depths of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to celebrate the CMA's 25th anniversary.
