      This show didn't stream. In fact, NOTHING from Blackpot streamed over 2 days. People pointed this out as each show failed to stream. Isn't anyone paying attention? This is disappointing for the artists and for their fans.

The South Louisiana Black Pot Festival & Cookoff is one of the most unique festivals in Louisiana. Held annually at Lafayette’s Acadian Village, the festival celebrates its 9th year this October with two days of great music, dancing, food, camping & jamming. The festival is a cooperative of south Louisiana musicians, artists and southern culture enthusiasts, creating an unprecedented gathering of south Louisiana’s hottest roots bands, as well as a number of groups from all over the country. Live performances range from Cajun & Zydeco, to Creole, Swing, Hot Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Americana, Irish & Old-Time. Plus, an old-fashioned black pot cook-off, accordion contest, called square dancing, and ample camping space for tents & RV’s.

Their vision for Louisiana music extends beyond simple preservation, and their roster of recordings drives the point home. At Valcour, Louisiana music is a breathing entity capable of change, ready to push forward into the future.-Cody Daigle, The Times of Acadiana

Valcour Records explores both traditional and innovative Louisiana sounds and packages them for the music fan’s listening pleasure. In doing so, we allow music lovers to discover the roots and progression of our culture and our music.

Three South Louisiana natives, Joel Savoy, Lucius Fontenot, and Phillip LaFargue, each with a keen interest in music and complementary skills to offer, formed Valcour Records to provide the artists we know and love with a platform to share their talent. Anyone who has had the pleasure of sitting in on a Cajun music jam or catching a good show at a South Louisiana bar or dancehall knows that the talent stash in our part of the world has evolved into one of the richest and most exciting phenomena in music.

While Valcour will soon start picking up acts from beyond our home state, supporting and developing the artists of Louisiana will always be a primary part of our mission.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to bringing you plenty of great music for years to come. Keep your ears open.
