About this Episode

Can you remember your last normal night out? For me it was March 7, 2020. We saw @spiderstacy & @rockyoriodan of @poguesofficial on their Mid-Atlantic @poguetrylive tour, backed by the @lostbayouramble. Four days later the world shut down and we’ve been couped up ever since. What was it like to be on tour on those last days? In this episode of For Songs, I chat with Louis Michot, lead singer and fiddler player of @lostbayouramble and @michotsmelody makers, about what happened on those last frantic nights on tour, and then his love and passion for #cajunmusic. We dig into four traditional Cajun songs, including one that blends traditional Cajun and Irish sounds, and three live tracks from the Michot Melody Makers' July 2020 release, Cosmic Cajuns from Saturn. Sit back, grab a drink, and listen to Louis walk you back in time.
