The New Riverside Ramblers have been a big part of Minnesota's traditional Cajun music revival for years. They make regular appearances around town to promote the Louisiana music and even offer dance lessons at their shows.
Many are calling it a "supergroup," but whatever you do, don't call it a "band." In fact, The Good, The Bad, and The Queen -- the new project from Blur frontman (and Gorillaz founder) Damon Albarn -- is apparently the name of the album, not the group itself.
Peter Mulvey, a product of Wisconsin and a regular performer in The Morning Show playlist, is touring the country constantly. He even books some regular gigs in Ireland where he met Clive Barnes, a respected guitarist and singer in his own right.
