Re: Ray Abshire

ray is a first class act. willing to share the culture and music with those of us who don't live in SW louisiana. i learned more about the heart and soul of Cajun music when i joined he and Mr. Leo Abshire (whom i miss dearly) one night at Randol's dance hall. he is a dear friend and musical mentor.....

ray plays the music on his terms and because of that makes no concessions. and takes no prisoners!! and he is the rare accordion player with a fiddler's sensibility (yes, spoken by a fiddle player.....)

Re: Re: Ray Abshire

Well said! Truth is that an accordion player would be nothing without the accompaniment of the other instruments.

Re: Ray Abshire

I totally agree...Ray Abshire is a class act and probably
my favorite cajun accordionist...I have played his
first CD so much its probably going to go flat...now that I
got the second one, I will give it a little rest./
