What happen to those Cajun musicians you guys were going to hire ?
being descendants of French Canadians !
Accordion, fiddle, harmonica, washboard....
Just go down a highway 10 past Lafayette;
there's a Baton Rouge, you'll find 'em.

They are just midi and don't sound as good as the RealTrack thing.

Maybe these are in 2019 ??

This is an awesome Documentary
https://www.alibris.com/search/movies/upc/3561302400785
I had a friend come over from France a couple of months back, he took the DVD back with him so I had to get another.

Louisiana Blues Musical Documentary

From the camera of celebrated French documentarians Jean-Pierre Bruneau and Jose Reynes, and in the tradition of The Buena Vista Social Club, comes the exhilarating musical documentary Louisiana Blues. From the backwoods of Baton Rouge to the heart the Big Easy, creole and Cajun music have endured despite years of tumult. This film explores not only the musicians who continue to produce this music, but the climate, culture, and way of life that have shaped them. Innumerable zydeco superstars appear onscreen and deliver legendary performances, including Beau Jocque, D.L. Menard, and Zydeco Joe. Nathan Southern, Rovi

Laissez les faire les bon temps rouler, y'all, and thanks in advance if this catches the eye of anyone at PG Music.

Jeez - trying to make Cajun and Creole music with existing MIDI and samples is a dog that won't hunt, it's got to be live musicians like a few good RealTracks sets.

This sure seems like a good business opportunity. Oh....was that a hint that I dropped?
