This past weekend, the Alabama Folk School hosted its first ever Cajun Weekend.
Seventeen students and four instructors composed our inaugural workshop and it really was a blast. The Savoy Family Band generously offered their expertise and talent as instructors in accordion, fiddle, guitar and music.
They performed a wonderful concert Saturday night, with many people joining in and dancing.
I am already looking forward to our second Cajun weekend in 2016. Next year, we will have the benefit of being able to use the new dance hall, Hall Hall, for the concert and dance.
