Cory McCauley – Play That Thing, Yeah Jack CD


SKU MTE5061 Categories ,

Cory McCauley plays traditional Cajun music going back to an era when musicians would gather together for house dances or just to play, the way McCauley and his friends do on their 1999 CD, Play That Thing, Yeah Jack. McCauley is on accordion, his wife, Lisa, plays guitar, and they both do vocals, with Jason Frey, Clint Ward, or Bernard Veillon on fiddle, Mike Rougeau on bastringue, and Vernon Bergeron on percussion. The CD has received a nomination as Recording of the Year from the Cajun French Music Association. The album features many old yet timeless songs, the vocal and musical styles evoke an earlier era, but the sense of commitment and feeling the group brings to their music make the songs come alive for listeners today. Released in 1999, 24 tracks. (narration by Helin McCauley)
