The Mallett Brothers band “Vive L’Acadie” – Listen

Maine-based southern-infused rockers The Mallett Brothers Band have an album due soon for which this current song serves as the title track.  One could be forgiven for thinking they’re Cajun inspired, the tradition being honoured here is French but it has Canadian roots as Luke Mallett explains : “The Acadians wound up being Cajun, but they’re a French, Canadian and Irish mix of people that ended up in the woods up north. Their influence is all over Maine. Our grandfather came from Salmon River, Nova Scotia. If you go back up there, there’s a whole cemetery full of Malletts.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
