The Old Fashioned #31

Toronto Cajun band Swamperella.

Cajun music is a constant source of inspiration for us old-time and traditional music fans. It has a pulse and a danceability like no other genre. The fiddle pairs with the accordion much as it does with the banjo in Appalachian music, as Amy notes in this show. And it’s nested in a culture that’s rich with language, race, history and food. So as Amy set off to attend another Blackpot Festival in Lafayette, LA, we cooked up a gumbo of music with an extra large measure of bayou magic. Also this episode, new songs from Seth Mulder and Midnight Run, Joseph DeCosimo and the Caleb Daughtery Band. Voila!
