Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys have announced that Kevin Wimmer will be joining the band.  Wimmer is a fine fiddler and singer.  He was a member of the California Cajun Orchestra and relocated to Louisiana several years ago.  CDs:  Not lonesome anymore (Arhoolie CD356, 1991) and Nonc Adam two step (Arhoolie CD-436, 1995).  He was a founding member of Balfa Toujours (1993) and played on Steve Riley’s traditional Cajun CD Racines.  A great addition to the lineup – look for them at Jazz Fest!
