Friday fanfare: “Fire on the Bayou”

The New Orleans traditional song variously known as “Iko Iko” and “Fire on the Bayou” and any number of other titles has been performed by a variety of musicians over the years, most famously the great Dr. John. One of my absolute favorites, though, is by Jim Byrnes, the Canadian actor/musician probably best known for his role as Joe Dawson on Highlander: The Series. This version, from his live album I Turned My Nights Into Days, is fantastic.
