Jesse lege, Joel Savoy and Kelli Jones
Grammy winning traditional Cajun French music from Southwest Louisiana.
Jesse Lége is the real deal. He is one of the most admired Cajun accordionists and vocalists in the world, known especially for his clear, “crying” vocals. In 1998 he was inducted into the Cajun Music Hall of Fame.
Son of Cajun music royalty Marc and Ann Savoy, and founder of the Louisiana-based label Valcour Records. Joel Savoy, ten-time GRAMMY nominee, was recently appointed as the Artistic Director of the prestigious Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, Washington. He is a versatile fiddler and guitarist and he played and taught music around the world for the last 20 years.
Joining Jesse and Joel is Kelli Jones, who grew up in North Carolina before moving to Lafayette, Louisiana. Her father Carl Jones is an Old Time, Appalachian influenced fiddler. Kelli started fiddling at 15 and has been playing fiddle and guitar with the best Cajun bands since 2006.
