Album Notes
Experience traditional Cajun music from a family whose roots grow deep in the soil of south Louisiana. Joel Martin and the Family Band represents what kept Cajun music alive for generations - a family group, playing for the love of music, family, friends and culture. Members of the Martin family are joined by outstanding musician friends, crafting a CD that is a joy to hear. One hears traditional Cajun instruments - Accordion, Fiddle, and Steel Guitar - blended with fresh harmonies, well-loved folk songs, and original work.

Few families understand Cajun music and its nuances like the Martin family. Martin Accordions is one of the major
manufacturers of Cajun diatonic accordions in the world. Clarence \"Junior\" Martin crafts these instruments by hand, in a small factory/workshop where he gladly gives tours to visitors.

Junior Martin, grandfather to Joel Martin (and a member of the Family Band), felt a calling to build accordions, and
learned from master builder Marc Savoy. Both agree that building accordions and playing Cajun music share a common
thread: Share what you know.

In this CD, Clarence \"Junior\" Martin, his grandson Joel, and family members Pennye and Bryan and friends indeed share what they know. The result is a CD that will make you want to dance, laugh, and cry. You may or may not speak Cajun French...but you speak this universal language of music.
