Clip is taken from Yasha Aginsky’s documentary “Cajun Visits”. It is an AWESOME film I would HIGHLY recommend. Cajun accordionist Leopold. Full name is Leopold Francois. I do not know much about him. I know he was very talented, and gives a very candid interview. Here plays “Happy Hill Special” with Dewey Balfa in a back yard setting.

Only in Texas. Austin, Texas to be exact.
Charles was raised in a traditional Cajun family household in Beaumont, Texas. His parents were Church Point, Louisiana natives and for their wedding celebration and dance, Iry LeJeune provided the entertainment. His parents spoke French around the house when they didn’t want the kids to understand what they were saying but the kids understood it anyway.
Charles’s late cousin, Joe Thibodeaux, owned the Rodair Club in Port Acres Texas. During his youth, he visited the legendary club on a regular basis and was influenced to play the Cajun accordion by watching Andrew Cormier and The Rambling Aces band which included Rodney LeJeune, Dallas Roy and many other famous Cajun musicians.
At age 16, a friend gave him a used accordion that had a couple of keys missing. It had tape over the holes and reeds that wouldn’t play. After saving up his money, he bought an inexpensive Hohner but got side tracked away from his music for many years. While visiting an uncle in Church Point in the early 90′s, Charles mentioned that he was shopping for an accordion. His uncle walked him through the pasture, and over to the house next door and Charles bought a Pointe Noir in the key of C from the famous accordion builder, Dick Richard. He also plays 2 Martin accordions in the keys of D and B flat.
Charles formed a traditional Cajun Band in the Spring of 2004 for a group of Mardi Gras enthusiasts and they have since, thrilled audiences throughout the State of Texas and they continue to Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler—Let the Good Times Roll in Austin!

I just got an accordion and am so excited to play. I am most interested in playing Christmas music. Unfortunately, when God was handing out musical talent, he skipped me. Also, I can not find anyone in my area who will give lessons. It seems to be hopeless. Does anyone know if there are any sort of online tutorials to get started? or many some sort of Accordion for Dummies book or DVD series? (I am sort of joking about that last part… but am still hopeful! lol) Let me know if anyone can help me out with this! Thanks!
Learning from a teacher would be best, but if none are available here are some online lessons –
You can also find quite a lot on youtube.
Also here is a link to an accordion bass button layout – this always confuses beginners, so it might be helpful –
There are some DVD’s available, but they are usually geared towards a very specific type of music (Irish, Tex-Mex, ect.) and not always for beginners.
I wish! Leo Perrin has a cajun zydeco music show on KNON on Monday nights at 8:00 – location is 89.3 FM. He is slightly irritating and every minute he tells you how many minutes are left in his show but it’s about all we get here.
There is a party at Poor David’s on the 18th – info on KNON web site
Also on Sunday almost all day starting at 7 – 4 you can listed to Cajun and zydeco music on the Lafayette La. Public Radio station KVRS. They broadcast over the internet.
Heck, there isn’t even much Cajun music heard in this town.
Steve Riley forever!!!!
