August 2013 Louisiana Rhythms Archives

Eric features music of some of the hip young Cajun & Zydeco bands currently rocking the southwest Louisiana music scene!

Karl starts off with some Cajun tracks by the ladies. Followed with some Zydeco. Then Karl features the Valcour record label. Winding up with a little Swamp Pop and finally some Zydeco Classics by Nathan Williams and Boozoo Chavis.

Eric plays classic recordings of Aldus Roger, Austin Pitre, and their musical progeny.

Karl plays some classic Zydeco to start the show with Boozoo, Lynn August, Jude Taylor and Nathan Williams and the Zydeco Cha-Chas. And then he goes on a Valcour Records binge with tracks by the Pine Leaf Boys, the Balfa Bros et. al. at the Festival Acadien, Bonsoir Catin, Cedric Watson, Steve Riley, Kevin Wimmer, and Chris Stafford. And the show finishes with some more classic Zydeco from Beau Jocque, Zydeco Force, and Clifton Chenier.
