About the Music
Clyde Curley, fiddle; David Cahn, button accordion; Jerry Gallaher, banjo; Bill Meyer piano. The music: The traditional tunes of French Canada, namely, Quebec and the Acadian regions of the Maritime provinces. Expect lively, punchy dance music filled with the joie-de-vivre of the culture. Expect also rare and unusual and very "crooked" tunes, haunting and beautiful. The band has a fifteen-year history of playing for dances and has steeped itself in the lore and history of this great music.
