The Lost Bayou Ramblers are fronted by Louis Michot on fiddle and vocals.  There’s a write-up on him in the New York Times on July 4, 2012 on the cover of the Home and Garden section.  It says “He possesses one of the great keening voices of Cajun music.”  The lead in is about how he built his house, creating one wall out of ‘boussilage,’ a mixture of local Spanish moss and mud.  The Ramblers, Feufollet and the Pine Leaf Boys are sometimes described as the best young bands of this generation, and rightfully so.  The Ramblers have a raw sound, and perform with a fierce energy, leading them to be called ‘punk.’  Read the article and buy a CD; I recommend Live a la Blue Moon.  If you like your music full of energy and feeling, you’ll like the Lost Bayou Ramblers.
