Balfa Brothers Artist Snapshot:

Though Cajun legends the Balfa Brothers were a popular live attraction as early as 1948, Dewey, Will, Burke, Harry, and Rodney (with assistance from family friend Hadley Fontenot on accordion) didn't record their first LP until 1965. Their second followed a full nine years later. Theirs is an entirely acoustic sound, based on the jangling rhythm of the guitar, the sprightly tinkling of the triangle, and two wailing fiddles, alternately melancholy and joyous. Dewey, the band's de facto leader, is possessed of a classic Cajun vocal style; it's frequently impossible to tell whether he's lamenting or rejoicing. The Brothers' rough-hewn, earthy feel is so captivating that the listener is drawn fully in, regardless of which way the mood swings.
