Mes Parents Veulent Plus Me Voir


musician/member name: People & Blogs

description:
I learned this French Cajun tune many years ago from a fellow named Jack Giger in southern Illinois. I think I originally heard it played and sung by Canray Fontenot in the early 1970's at the Frontier Folk Life Festival at the Gateway Arch. I hadn't played it in probably a decade, but stumbled upon a recording of it this morning by Dr. Bubba's OK Bayou Dance Band that brought it back to mind and into my fingers. I won't even try to pronounce the title or sing the French lyrics!
Hope you enjoy it.

@Dusty-Turtle. Thanks.  I've seen it both ways, but I learned it as "Mes Parents...".  Either works! 😉

That's an old Conray Fontenot tune, Sean, and you do right by it. You definitely got my feet moving!  I've seen it referred to as "Tes parents . . . " meaning "your parents. . . " but I'm not sure what the original was.
