Musicians Ann Savoy and Jane Vidrine formed the Magnolia Sisters duo after discovering how well their singing voices blended. This collection of 22 songs contains some of their favorite Cajun songs, which they selected to reflect the shared experiences and courage of both women, who settled in Louisiana from distant homes. The songs conjure up images of real-life stories and times past. Some of the lyrics were altered slightly to be more reflective of a woman’s perspective. The liner notes provide context about the songs and the Cajun French lyrics with English translation.
