An online article on Cajun fiddler Harry Choates published by “The Record Live,” from Orange County, Texas contains some interesting anecdotes and information. However, the article misspells his name throughout (at least they’re consistent!) as “Choate.” They also use the spelling “accordian,” when “accordion” is the preferred spelling (6.9 million hits on Google vs 890,000). The details of Choates life are welcome, but it’s exasperating to have such a simple error committed repeatedly, casting doubt on the accuracy of the rest of the article. Any additional info on Choates is welcome, since there is so little.
