Here’s a brief discussion with Steve Riley and CC Adcock about the new CD Grand Isle.  They discuss song choices and instrumentation.  Grand Isle is one of the push-the-envelope-of-Cajun-music CDs from Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, like Happytown and Bayou Ruler.  The band will perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (known locally as ‘Jazz Fest’) on Thursday, May 5, the second weekend.  You can hear the band at five earlier Jazz Fests from the Munck Music Jazz Fest web site.
