We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Cajun Musician and our friend Courtney Granger. He was an amazing musician and singer, and the most generous spirited and kind hearted soul. We had the honour of having Courtney come and play at the Big Weekend in 2019, we cherish those memories now more than ever. A true gentle man with immense strength and spirit. Courtney could make the hairs stand up and the tears flow with one note from his fiddle or word from a song, such a rare ability to touch people so deeply this way.Thank you for your music, love, inspiration and friendship Courtney!We will all miss you, but never forget you, go well my friend <3 <3 ...
