Mama Rosin: The Boat Sessions #1
A great piece of video of our favourite Swiss Cajun act Mama Rosin.
They were playing as a session for World Music magazine Songlines.
I featured them a while back when they played in Glasgow as part of the Celtic Connections festival, it's great to hear them doing so well.
They've just toured the UK and Ireland, and are currently playing in Poland and Germany.
their most recent album Bye Bye Bayou was released in October last year, bringing another chapter in their punk-informed take on French Southern American music via the shores of Lake Geneva.
the album was produced by John Spencer, from the band Blues Explosion, who first came across Mama Rosin when they supported him during some of his gigs in Europe.
Nice to see them getting some of the attention they deserve.
There are some more dates in the Netherlands and Paris next month, and shows in Texas and Louisiana following that.
