The web site examiner.com is reporting that Rounder Records will release a single CD of live recordings made from 1964 to 1967 at the Newport Folk Festival.  As the article says:  “Performers on the anthology include the Balfa Brothers, Bois-Sec Ardoin and Canray Fontenot, Austin Pitre, and Adam and Cyprien Landreneau.”  Barry Ancelet is quoted on the great importance of these recordings.  Cajun musicians performing at the festival are often credited with sparking a revival in Cajun music at home and fanning interest nationwide.  Sounds very promising.
