Show Notes

The roots of the Grammy-winning Cajun band Lost Bayou Ramblers go back to brothers André and Louis Michot playing in their father’s group as teenagers. They’re celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band with a new live record, “Asteur,” and the documentary, “On Va Continuer.” Accordion and guitar player André steps into the Ring Room to discuss south Louisiana music and culture, and the band’s efforts to preserve it and carry it forward. The Troubled Men are happy just to make it home. Topics include the next campaign, topless states, a truck stop camel, a Susan Cowsill gig, Les Freres Michot, early gig experience, a robbery, free light bulbs, suppression of French, Randy Falcon and accordion building, Flaco and Santiago Jimenez, a strategy, an award ceremony, Scarlett Johansson, pawning platinum, the Circle Bar anniversary party, a new release, Spider Stacy, Cajun music in New Orleans, and much more.
