Courtney Granger is the next generation of the Balfa Family and his inspired fiddling and singing are testament to the power of that bloodline. He recorded his debut CD for Rounder Records at the age of 15. Now in his late twenties, he has matured into one of the most passionate singe rs and fiddlers in Louisiana.  Courtney sheds new light on the ancient traditions left to him by his family and stakes his own claim as a vibrant young master musician. He sings with soulful abandon, fiddles with a seemingly impossible combination of ancient wisdom a nd youthful vigor, and possesses an endless repertoire of both Cajun and classic country tunes. Courtney plays in the Balfa Toujours and with The Pine Leaf Boys.
