Re: Ossun Two Step Revisited

Excellent rendition by a great traditionalist. It's interesting that Ray Abshire has substantially changed the detail of the song from the Walker version, yet artfully keeps the melody intact with his unique interpretation.

Jnightshade and I will have to hone our skills a bit before addressing this one. :-)

Me and Nedro can do it!

Re: Ossun Two Step Revisited

Ha, that would be Floyd Soileau that had the record label and recording studio. Leo was an early fiddler.

I am amazed by Lawrence's recordings. He not only was a great player, he was quite an innovator. He may not have been the first to do some of the licks he does, but he's the first I've heard recordings of.

Re: Ossun Two Step Revisited

Yep, Floyd as in "Floyd's Record Shop." I lost track of time.

That brings to mind, are you related to Mayeus Lafleur who played for Leo?

Re: Ossun Two Step Revisited

Yes, but not closely.
