One Step De Chupic - Dennis McGee - The Early Recordings Of Dennis McGee (Vinyl, LP)

Traditional Cajun Dance Music. Savoy, Ann Allen. Cajun Music: A Reflection of a People. Eunice, LA: Bluebird Press, Dennis McGee was one of Cajun music's most influential fiddlers. Although he only recorded for a brief five years to , McGee remained an inspiration for Cajun musicians through his Acadienne festival performances and his large repertoire, which included hundreds of old Cajun songs.

McGee 's first fiddle was a gift from a cousin. After spending two days in his room teaching himself to play, McGee had mastered two songs. In the s and 80s, McGee continued to perform with Sady Courville at festivals and special concerts and recorded for various American and French labels including Morningstar, Cinq Planetes, Swallow, and Music of the World. Also, his legacy includes his knowledge of playing older styles of Cajun music before the s, when the accordion was introduced.

During the next 11 years, the British continued to exile Acadians, more than in all, of whom died at sea of smallpox and other diseases. The survivors were scattered in major cities across the Eastern Seaboard and west in Canada and the States… In time, they found their way to Louisiana, where they were welcomed by the already-established French and Spanish Catholic population.

They settled in the southwestern corner of the state with the blessings of the French governor. Why should not such a people with such a history, have given birth to a wild impassioned music, indigenous to Cajuns and no one else, as escapist in its insistence on dance — one-steps, two-steps, waltzes, even polkas and mazurkas in the old days — as it was heartbreaking in its yearning?

An angry music, issuing a challenge: I dare you to tamper with my joy. And who indeed would dare to tamper with their joy! We do it by coming back on the high string and short of choking it as the bow rubs over it gently. So can Mr. Dennis McGee and a few other old-time fiddlers.

Dennis sometimes plays with what looks like a full two inches between the hair and the wood, so taut is that bow!
