about

Dennis McGee (1893-1989) and Sady Courville (1905-1988) formed the musical bedrock for Cajun fiddling. As Roger Weiss described their complex twin fiddling styles; “a less-beautiful form of musicノrawノimpassioned.” Dennis and Sady recorded eight tunes for Vocalion in 1929. Afterwards, Dennis recorded additional songs with Ernest Frugè Amedè Ardoin, and Angelas Le Jeunne. In July 1972, after Dennis and Sady performed at the National Folk Festival, they traveled to Joe Bussardユs home to be recorded by Charles Faurot for the first time since 1929 for Richard Nevins’ now rare Morning Star LP #16001. This CD includes the LP’s twelve songs plus sixteen previously unreleased tunes from that recording session. – Jack Bond
