Imagine two of Cajun music’s most prolific ambassadors sitting down across from each other in a small, cozy room, making music together for the very first time. The performance, the repertoire, and even the instruments are timeless – filling the room instantly with a joyous, spontaneous energy that is remniscent of the historic recordings of Cajun masters Amédé Ardoin, Dennis McGee, and Amédé Breaux. Brought together by a shared affinity for vintage Cajun accordions, Doug Kershaw and Steve Riley are captured here for their first time in a duo setting to pay tribute to the old masters who first introduced their music to the world in the 1920s. The result is simply magical. Released in September 2014, 12 tracks.
