I think the couple in the Mardi Gras costumes was from St. Martinsville or another Louisiana town. Saturday I was wearing white pants and and orange top. Sunday I was wearing a greenish dress. Most of the time I was just hanging around ~ sometimes up near the stage ~ as my husband doesn't dance. Sorry to have missed you.
Do you know if there is anyone in the area who teaches the cajun accordion?
I did not know there was a difference in the times when the drunks are out and what is the difference between the drunks at night and the everyday drivers?
Sorry Leon ~ I don't know of any Cajun accordion teachers in this area. In fact, the only Cajun accordion player who plays reasonably well who lives in this neck of the woods (IMO) is Greg Taillon of Orlando who performs with The Porchdogs.
I started a search for a teacher about 7 years ago or so. Met Gentry McCauley, Cory McCauley's brother (Cory is an EXCELLENT traditional player) in the process, but never found anyone to help me out. Greg Taillon has too many irons in the fire to do any teaching on a regular basis, but offered to sit down with me sometime and show me a few tricks. Never got to the point where I took him up on it.
If YOU ever find a teacher in Central Florida, be sure to post it here!
