The Balfa Brothers Play Traditional Cajun Music (1967 Swallow Records)

The Balfa Brothers Play Traditional Cajun Music

I had this record ready to post here long before there was a Cat 4 hurricane bearing down on the bayou.  I’ve been rewatching some Les Blank films this summer, which may be why I felt inspired to share this gem.  The Balfa Brothers were the real deal.  If you are remotely interested in Cajun music or the Acadian contribution to American roots music (e.g. country or “country & western”), do yourself a favor and check them out.  Some of you may know them from their inclusion on various compilations, but it is nice to have an entire long player of this material.  I don’t have any profound commentary to add; I just haven’t posted on this blog all month, and I sure hope the people of Louisiana are doing okay right now.
