Re: The Lost Style Makes A Comeback

Samuel's dad(Vincent) plays fiddle in the French band Pain de Mais.
He also played in Vermenton Plage a band from years ago.
Also played in the Liberty theatre at Eunice (see link#2)
I saw Pain de Mais last March on a festival in England.
Lovely band.

Formed in France in the 80s to play Cajun music, this group took its name from its home base, a village in L’Yonne, north of Bourgogne. The members of the band were Eric Martin (accordion, melodeon, violin), Charly Caugant (violin), Vincent Giarrusso (violin/bass), and Alain Serres (guitar), with all four doubling on vocals.

Also the children of Eric Martin(accordionbuilder too)play cajunmusic and they formed a band with Samuel named 4Jeun.
They play this year at the Saulieu Cajun & Zydeco festival if I'm well informed.

All of them are very nice people and allways ready to jam everywhere.
But maybe Marc knoes more.
