A small piece in the Hereford (U.K.) Times announces a performance by Sarah Savoy and the Francadians Jan. 21, 2010. Sarah is the daughter of Cajun music longtimers Marc and Anne Savoy. First it was brother Jo-El and the Red Stick Ramblers, then Wilson’s Pine Leaf Boys. Now it’s sister Sarah’s turn, with a new band. The article doesn’t peg them as having an old-time Cajun sound, but more inspired by 1940s and 1950s jazz and honky-tonk music, “singing Hank Williams songs in French.” Bring it on! And don’t forget mom’s other project, Anne Savoy and Her Sleepless Knights, with a 1930s string jazz sound. Festival International is just around the corner!
