Saint Patrick's Throwback: Spider Stacy & Lost Bayou Ramblers Perform in the Boardroom

Tin whistle, Cajun French and fiddle filled the Pop Dust board room as very special guests Spider Stacy and Lost Bayou Ramblers paid us a visit while doing a run of sold out shows in NYC. Stacy is probably best known best for co-founding legendary celtic punk band, The Pogues in London, as well as his role on Treme. These days he's a certified 'Naw-land-er,' and Louisiana is where he linked up and began performing with the Grammy-nominated cajun music group, Lost Bayou Ramblers.

Watch our exclusive video of the gang performing "If I Had Wings," live! The sonic blend of these artists is nothing short of awesome. It wasn't the Irish punk sound, nor the southern-fiddle experience you might expect; its an entirely new sound with a ton of history behind it. After the performance we discussed the common roots of Celtic and Cajun music, a tour van that went lost-and-found and the legacy of Dennis McGee. Fans of the Pop Dust Presents series may recall another interview we did with a New Orleans-based group, The Revivalists.

Be sure to share the video and check out tour dates on the band's site to catch them in person!

Cajun hot!
