Buying acordeon in Louisianna

I'm coming from Montréal to get something more cajun than my honner I have for 20 years. What would you suggest me. Nice sound, nice look and tough, as I live far from the dealer. Is there a place we can have good used one?
Where could I have a few lesson while I am in Lafayette area?
Merci beaucoup et laissez le bon temps jouer!

Re: Buying acordeon in Louisianna

Im sure theres many. If you are coming that far I would sure make it a point to go visit Mark Savoy in Eunice. Also, in Lafayette, right off of I-10 at the ambassadeur Caffree exit, right behind the Microtel Hotel, Martin Accordions are made...Those are two 'must stops' for sure...Hope you enjoy your trip down here.

If you're looking for lessons in Lafayette, get in touch with Wilson Savoy (pineleafboys.com). He's just a couple doors down from the Blue Moon.

Salut Dan, j'arrive juste de la Louisiane. Je t'envoie un courriel avec des réponses.

You can also check with Mitch Reed at louisiana Heritage and gifts just north of Lafayette (not far off I-10).
