David Greely is a Cajun fiddler and singer and Grammy winner. For two decades he played and sang with Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, one of the greatest Cajun bands ever. David is a consummate musician who is currently doing solo concerts throughout North America. He also co-produced and played and sang on James Leva’s cd “Til I Know”.

James Leva, from Rockbridge County, VA, is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter whose music is deeply rooted in Appalachian tradition. He learned much of his fiddle, banjo and vocal repertoire from great traditional masters such as Tommy Jarrell and Doug Wallin, and played with seminal appalachian string bands Plank Road (with Al Tharp and Michael James Kott), Ace Weems and the Fat Meat Boys (with David Winston and Chad Crumm), the Hellbenders (with Bruce Molsky and Dave Grant) and the Freewill Savages (with Dirk Powell).

James will join David and Cedric in an exploration of the traditional music of Southwest Louisiana and the Southern Appalachians.

Note: Cedric Watson was to have joined James and David, but will not be appearing due to an illness from which he is recovering.
