Tribute to Varise Conner with David Greely & the Conner Family at 2004 Festivals Acadiens
Description : KRVS radio broadcast, September 19, 2004, of a remarkable tribute to the great Lake Arthur fiddler Varise Conner in honor of his historic appearance 30 years ago at Festivals Acadiens, Lafayette Louisiana, and in honor of the release of cd, Louisiana Folk Masters Series : Varise Conner
Wow! Of all the special performances and tributes over the years featured at Festivals Acadiens, this must rank among the sweetest! BEAUTIFUL loving tribute by David Greely, the Conner Family, and Barry Ancelet celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first Tribute to Cajun Music held in Louisiana, and the music of fiddler Varise Conner. Announcer Barry Ancelet remarks how Greely, from the Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys band, is there facing down four guitarists from the Conner family accompanying him. Magnificent job by all! You will want the Varise Conner cd after hearing this!
fiddle : David Greely; guitars : Milton Conner, Edgar Benoit, Mitchell Conner, George Conner
