Want something fun to get you going this morning? Forget coffee, here's one of my favorite bands playing a hot Cajun tune — Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys on the NPR Tiny Desk Concert. These songs are part of Riley's album Grand Isle which I highly recommend, was nominated for a Grammy Award. Allons danser!
And by the way, when Coleman Thorpe plays a mean fiddle song in Emilie and Rose, I based it on Steve Riley's hot fiddle playing on the album, La Toussaint.
