Notes

Varise Conner has been called the “greatest unrecorded Cajun musician.” With this groundbreaking 72 minute collection of previously unavailable songs and stories featuring liner notes by Michael Doucet, David Greely, Carl Brasseaux and Barry Jean Ancelet, we now have an opportunity to hear masterful renditions of waltzes, two-steps, blues, a mazurka, a polka and even “Lake Arthur Stomp” as performed by its originator in his own home.
