Canadian to Acadian du Nord

Hey, Maz!

Actually,not too many Canadians do post on this board,(Nicole is one)and I hope you don't take offense for me to call you " Canadian" , and that I posted a link to your beautifull city as well!( that's for Bruce benefit) .
I'm at the present time investigating, my connection as an Acadian, if any !.
My family name as you may know,is Luneau, not a common name, even in France, but evident in the very early and present Louisiana life.
So, who knows , perhaps I could also call myself , Acadian du Nord .
But, this brings me to a good point!,now that we have your photograph,perhaps we can now put a good old Acadian name on it?, so out of an historical and personnal context, what's your full name?.
Although, my travels, very soon, will take me to your beautifull city, and since my accordions are never far from me, perhaps we could jam toghether?.
Let me know!!!.

Au revoir.


Re: Canadian to Acadian du Nord

Absolutely, let me know the next time you're in town. Please drop me a line at rymazerolle@assante.com
and I'll give you more details.
You're from New Brunswick I think? What kind of box do you play on and style? When is your next visit to Hlx?

Re: Re: Canadian to Acadian du Nord

Hey guys,
same here... if you ever come to Montreal, let me know and maybe we can arrange something. We are a few who play and enjoy Cajun music in Quebec.

what instruments do you play (apart the accordion)?


Re: Re: Re: Canadian to Acadian du Nord

Guitare, harmonica. You? Whereabout are you in Mtl?


Accordion (4 years) and fiddle (a couple of months).

Actually, I live in Granby, Québec, but most of the other Cajun "fans" I know live in or near Montreal.

I spend a week in New Brunswick every summer, around Bouctouche and Cocagne. I love it there!


Re: Granby

Excellent. Vous êtes francophone?
Mon père est de Tracadie, NB. J'ai grandi à Laval, Qc.

It is a small world...

Le monde est petit! oui, je suis Québécoise pure laine.

Au plaisir de se rencontrer un de ces jours,

Peut-ëtre en décembre au Qc ou l'été prochain au NB?

Je vais poursuivre la discussion en anglais afin que nos compatriotes puissent participer si ça leur tente...

I will probably be going up to Mtl area (Mercier & Laval) this mid December for a couple of days as my dad will be turning 75. Maybe we could get together for a few tunes and put names on faces.
My parents spend the summer in Tracadie. If you happen to be in NB around July 14-16, you should come to Tracadie. My parents organize an open house party every year around that time where family and friends come over. There's always several musiciens who get together for some music. It's a lot of fun.

I saw on the net that there's a Cajun festival in Qc every year (in Wakefield?). Have you been there?
Have you been to the Carrefour mondial de l'accordéon a Montmagny?
What kind of accordion do you play on?

Ciao.... Maz

Re: Peut-ëtre en décembre au Qc ou l'été prochain au NB?

I have a Miller Bon Cajun in C, made of Mexican wood. I also have a Melodie in D, made in Québec. Nice little machine...

You have my email address, so you can let me know when you'll be around.


Re: Re: Peut-ëtre en décembre au Qc ou l'été prochain au NB?

Qui fabrique les Melodie au Québec? Ont-ils un lien sur le web?


Les Accordéons Mélodie, à Montmagny.

Monsieur Vézina et Monsieur Raynald Ouellet (known Québécois accordionist) got together and designed a very nice accordion.

Re: Mélodie?

Ho oui, j'en ai entendu parlé.
Le mois passé, j'ai justement rencontré un accordéoniste de Montmagny qui fait parti du group Le vent du Nord. Ils étaient de passage à Halifax.
Le gars (le nom m'échappe?) est un grand ami de Raynald Ouellet, et co-fondateur du Carrefour. Il avait un des machines de Ouellet en clé de Ré.
Ciao. Maz
