Joel Savoy's Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round


Joel Savoy's Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round


Released in 2013

Valcour’s own Joel Savoy has been at the forefront of the roots music scene in Acadiana since his teens and as a result he has become part of a growing community of young musicians across the country who are asking for more out of their radio than commercial stations provide.

On his new release, he offers a view into Acadiana’s own vintage country scene, showcasing the incredible talents of many of his peers who are oftentimes associated more with the dominant tradition in the area, Cajun music.
