Bad Boys and Good Men is the first EP of Valcour’s ten-year anniversary project, I Wanna Sing Right: Rediscovering Lomax in the Evangeline Country. Produced by Joel Savoy and Joshua Caffery, I Wanna Sing Right is a limited edition set of four EPs that capture some of South Louisiana’s most talented artists performing fresh takes on a series of folk songs—both French and English—archived in Louisiana in 1934 by the late Alan and John Lomax.
