Details

4-CD/DVD set. In 1780 we find the first written records of fiddles in Louisiana used for song accompaniment and dancing. The arrival of the accordion in the 1870's was a turning point in Cajun music. Most accordions were in C, and for fiddlers the preferred key was D for the purpose of droning strings, so many tuned down one whole step to FCGD allowing the drones when actually playing in C. Both the Cajun tuning and Standard Tuning are included here.
