Ray Bonneville - "The Big Easy"

One of the things I intended to do when I fist set up this weblog was from time to time post YouTube videos I'd come across and particularly liked. I'd been meaning to link to one or two songs by Ray Bonneville, a Cajun/Blues musician who I stumbled across thanks to the power of YouTube(tm).

One of my favourite songs at the moment is his song "The Big Easy", which is about New Orleans -- in particular about the recovery after the disastrous floods there. Here are two different versions. The one I first saw:

And a more recent version:

I now have a copy of his CD Goin' by Feel, and sometimes have to stop myself from singing along... It's a great CD.

These videos from YouTube are not copyright to me, and are used with thanks.
