Nowadays, a 7' vinyl single might seem like a relic of the past, but not for South Louisiana's roots label, Valcour Records. Their latest release is a four-song collaboration between fiddlers Kelli Jones and Joel Savoy. Savoy, who is also the founder of Valcour, has made a name for himself over the past ten years by continuously releasing quality modern and traditional recordings, mainly from the area's younger generation of musicians.

The title track, "Toi, tu joue à l'amour," is a stripped down, violin and vocal cover by 60s pop singer, Petula Clark. "Attakapas Trail/Reel des Nez Picqués" is the duo's arrangement of two double fiddle tunes by famed Cajun musicians Michael Doucet and the late Al Berard. On the flip side, this sound continues on Dennis McGee's "McGee's Reel," and ends with the two singing harmony on their beautiful interpretation of "Dedans le sud de la Louisiane."

You can catch Jones and Savoy together this Friday night at SOLA Violins at 7:30 p.m. The pair will perform an hour and a half acoustic set of traditional and original music in the music store's main room. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here.

Along with the four songs mentioned above, I put together a collection of fiddle-based tunes from local artists for this week's playlist. Included in the mix is Cedric Watson's funky "Zozo noir," the Carrier Brothers' raw "Blues à Bébé," and the string-driven "Questions sans réponses" from progressive Cajun group, Feufollet.
