Limited vinyl LP pressing including digital download. French Kayaking Music was written for and inspired by the film Voyagers Without Trace, a documentary about a French trio who kayaked the Green and Colorado rivers in 1938. When Jenny Conlee (Decemberists/Black Prairie) heard that the film's director Ian McCluskey was looking for original music with a French flavor, a creative relationship was begun. Conlee was, at this time, delving deep into French accordion music. She was listening to old recordings and learning the style from books of French Musettes. Steve Drizos, drummer for Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons and Conlee's husband and musical collaborator, was brought in as recording engineer and then as producer and composer as well.
