It's a later (1956-1957?) adaptation of Iry Lejeune's 1954 "Duralde Waltz". Wilson Granger, who had previously tried get it known as "Bayou Chico Waltz" in 1953, decided to rework it with Iry.
This song is Dewey Balfa's second recording session, and his first with Nathan. Possibly Cleveland Deshotel on fiddle, Jr Benoit on guitar, Jakce Mier on steel guitar and Thomas Langley on drums.
My suggestion is pick one or the other. It's Cajun or zydeco! You can't be traditional and have zydeco in your music. It /my ass to Cajun/zydeco that's a marketing gimmick. Examples of ****ty music is country rock and zyde/Cajun.
That's a great point Mr. Jerry. I am trying for specifically Cajun but if I don't get enough people that play those instruments, I might have to turn to an alternative genre. I totally get your reference of not trying to allow two types of genre to coexist.
Does anyone know of any young Cajun musicians that are looking to find a Cajun band in Baton Rouge or in the Acadiana area? Would getting involved in the local CFMA chapters be good for young musicians? Do you support this idea of LSU trying to start a Cajun band?
