What happened to the "Real Cajuns" thread

Post  pinhedz on Sun Sep 04, 2011 5:22 am

I remember what happened, now.

So what was the question? Can one tell which are the real Cajuns and which are the pretend Cajuns?

^ Hmmm scratch

Edith sounds too much like a French school-marm type folkie to me. The pirogues on the bayous have no place in this. Ain't no gumbo and suchlike other Louisian-i-ay stuff there. This is a million miles from Lake Charles, bebe. Innit.

EDIT: but I see she IS a New Brunswick Acadian. So ... strictly speaking ... erm ... yes and no. study

EDIT 2: as for the first post, lovely stuff, including Mr Horton. Cleoma and Joe on this evidence set the pattern for cajun music up to the prsent day.

(Doug's wikiography relates that he didn't learn English 'til he was eight ... his first gig was at a local bar, the Bucket of Blood ... affraid cat cheers

My own reaction to Edith has always been that her scholarship is admirable. study
