Valcour has since released albums with Louisiana bands such as the Figs, Bonsoir Catin, GIVERS, and Feufollet. Through the Cajun and Creole [drinking songs compilation Allons Boire un Coup[3] (2007), the label has also featured the Pine Leaf Boys, Ann Savoy, Steve Riley and Racines, The Red Stick Ramblers, the Lost Bayou Ramblers, and Balfa heir Courtney Granger.
