Episode 6 of "MFF On Location" highlights New Orleans-based cajun musician, Amanda Shaw. Amanda has been a fiddling virtuoso since age seven, when she became the youngest person ever to play with the Baton Rouge Symphony as a soloist. Making the transition from Classical to Cajun, Amanda soon brought her own innovative crossover sound to the fore, gaining international fans. She and her band, The Cute Guys, have received raves on the festival circuit, Rollingstone.com called her “a fiddling wizard” and she recently opened for Cher at the VH1 Divas/Cher Farewell Tour. In January, Amanda was able to return to her heavily damaged school in New Orleans and will soon begin recording her first major album.
