Ann Savoy

Most of the artists we feature today gravitate around the University of Lafayette in Louisiana. This is a place dedicated for preservation of cajun and zydeco culture in Louisiana, and a place where many musicians happily experiment with their French-spoken heritage. So, today, we feature Corey Ledet with his new record, Louis Michot with his solo record and a gorgeous album with Lost Bayou Ramblers and Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Ann Savoy gathered her recording in the last couple of years and had them published by Smithsonian. A bunch of bands from several parishes around Lafayette recorded really fun French versions of classic rock songs, and that’s also scattered around the playlist. Louisiana heritage isn’t just cultivated in one small area of Louisiana, but all around the world. So we check out new music from Joe Le Taxi in Wales, Baton Rouge’s Le Roux covered CCR, The Carnivals joined forces with Becky Lynn Blanca to sing about New Orleans and Robert Finley plays his swamp blues up in the North of Louisiana.
