Cary Morin

Today’s episode is inspired by the new music more or less connected to Louisiana. We start off with the new names for us, one-man-band Jesse Dayton and native American guitarist Cary Moran. John Paul Keith is next with a Cajun tune on his latest live album, specially prepared to close the gap between releases during the pandemic. Slavic Soul Party also released a similar live effort. They are a brass band showcasing Balkan folk traditions, but Balkan brass bands are really not all that different to the New Orleans brass and I think it can be heard on the tune I selected for this show. Legendary Louisiana Le Roux are back with the new record. Rhiannon Giddens has a new single, and we check it out today as well.
