Cajun Champs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
Cajun Champs is an excellent sampler that explores traditional Louisiana music lovingly compiled by two well-known scholars of the genre, Chris Strachwitz, the president of Arhoolie Records, and Beausoleil fiddler Michael Doucet. The 22 tracks cover five decades of music dominated by the finest traditional fiddlers, accordionists, and vocalists, including Joe Falcon, Dewey Balfa, the Hackberry Ramblers, and Harry Choates. While all of this material has been previously released, the disc sounds great and is highly recommended as a starting point for the novice.
