  1. I'm crazy about the fiddle - it's an instrument I'd love to master if I could start all over again. I'd probably never be exposed to Cajun music if you didn't post these songs from time to time - the '40s and '50s stuff interests me. Thanks.

    1. Yay! Floyd LeBlanc is a long-time favorite. Wish there he had recorded more. . . .

    2. I know Floyd's daughter fairly well. Floyd recorded probably over a dozen tunes in his life, many for OT, Khoury and Houston based Opera label. His later recordings in the 60s have all the same fiddle style. Excellent musician.
