Courtney Granger is reaffirming the importance of the fiddle in the Cajun musical heritage. With an all-star cast of players, including Christine Balfa, Steve Riley and producer Dirk Powell, he both sheds new light on the ancient traditions left to him by his great-uncle Dewey Balfa and stakes his own claim as a vibrant young master musician. He sings with soulful abandon, fiddles with a seemingly impossible combination of ancient wisdom and youthful vigor, and leaves the listener both rhythmically and emotionally moved. This, his debut, is a must for any fan of the Cajun style or traditional music in general.
