Touring Cajun Country

May 24th, 2010

And trying to write a cajun song. I was inspired by seeing the Pine Leaf Boys play in Breaux Bridge, LA. La Poussiere dance hall is the real deal cajun dance hall, locals fast waltzing up and down the wood floor, smiling, gliding, twirling and laughing. These are the nicest people I have ever come across in my travels. They made me get up and dance, and I can’t dance and I hate to dance, but you just have to dance in cajun country.

My luck held later at the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafaytette, Roddie Romero and members of the Duhks played until the wee hours. That was straight up dance music and I had to dance again – I love the music but I’m telling you folks, I ain’t no dancer. Sunday, took a long drive back to New Orleans while listening to KRVS 88.7 cajun music Sunday.

I’m getting me a squeebox, cover your ears.
