The Balfa Family: A Retrospective
Festivals Acadiens et Créoles 1977-2010

12.00

Released in 2012

Valcour Records has teamed up again with Festivals Acadiens et Créoles and the Archives of Cajun and Creole Folklore at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette for this second release in the Rubber Bootleg Series, featuring selected festival performances by various configurations and members of The Balfa Family, spanning 1977 to 2010. The Balfas have helped shape Cajun music, how it is performed in different settings, the way it is preserved, and the way it progresses from one generation to the next. We owe them a great debt for their contribution to Louisiana music and we are honored to make this historical recording available.
