|Bonsoir, Catin… GRAMMY Nominated!|
We are very proud to announce that Bonsoir, Catin’s latest release out on Valcour Records, Light the Stars, has been nominated in the Regional Roots category of the 57th annual GRAMMY Awards!
Two other Acadiana bands - the Magnolia Sisters and Jo-El Sonnier – also received nominations for the Best Regional Roots Album Grammy. Incidentally, the Magnolia Sisters were nominated for their album, Love’s Lies, which was produced by Valcour’s own Joel Savoy. Ann Savoy, Joel’s mother, is one of the Magnolia Sisters. The three Acadian bands will compete with Hawaiian musician Kamaka Kukona and Native American artist Joe Tohonnie Jr. for the final honor.
We are extremely proud of Bonsoir, Catin and all the Louisiana bands representing the music of our state at the GRAMMY’s on February 8. Best of luck to all.
