Feufollet On Mountain Stage

Feufollet.
Feufollet.

Feufollet makes its first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at West Virginia University in Morgantown. The six members of the Louisiana band once described as "the Cajun Fleetwood Mac" take Cajun, honky-tonk and string-band music as their point of departure, all while keeping open minds about where their influences will lead them. Two Universes is Feufollet's first studio album in more than half a decade, and on it the band dives into blues, old-time sounds, country ballads and rock 'n' roll — all for the sake of the song.

Feufollet's Mountain Stage set closes with an unexpected cover: a Cajun take on Brian Eno's "Baby's On Fire." Chris Stafford sings and plays accordion, along with singer and fiddler Kelli Jones-Savoy, keyboard player Andrew Toups, bassist Phillippe Billeaudeaux, drummer Mike Stafford and guitarist Andy Bianculli.
