CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
Try Horace Trahan. He only has one cajun cd, I think its called "Ossun Blues", and its really good. He definately captures that older sound with good accordian and vocals. The cd label also has the song lyrics.

different horace cd
Horace seems to be better known for his zydeco than his traditional cajun songs. That is a shame, because though he did only one, it is one of my favorites and I rank him right up there with all the old time favorites.
My latest CD has some interesting "traditional" tracks on it...namely #4 Ton tit bec est doux (accordion, fiddle, guitar, triangle), #9 One step de Bashoot LeBlanc (same line plus snare drum and a washtub) #10 In the Pines #12 Dansez Codinne...also has two old contredanses (fiddle tunes)track#6...some of the tracks can be previewed at my site www.bayouroots.com....all of them can be previewed at CDbaby.com One of tunes mentioned above is original, the others are traditional...but not "over-recorded" (except for maybe "In the Pines")
I just visited your website, and listened to your song clips. I really enjoyed the sound.
Is your CD distributed in Canada?
On a different note, I noticed two "Broussard" on your band - they must be direct descendants of famous Acadien hero Joseph "Beausoleil" Broussard?
I wouldn't doubt that Tim and Marty are descendants of "Beausoleil!"
The CD is not distributed through retail stores in Canada, although it is available through numerous online retailers as it is from my site--bayouroots.com. See also floydsrecords.com, CDbaby.com, louisianamusicfactory.com
