I have been going through some photos...oh god...it's like organizing photos is a lifelong deal. One file for transferring pics from camera, then moving them into iPhoto and categories..but I like that it pretty much has removed going to the camera shop to get pics developed. I used to rush down to Yonge Street to a big "Japan Camera" for a one hour photo developement...it's nice that we can get pictures so fast. The joke is...I've got pics I haven't even sorted....and then you sort and find some gems. I completely was thrilled to find these pictures of the Savoy Music in Eunice, Lousianna. We went there with Mister Anchovy and Tuffy P and landed up meeting Marc Savoy. What a treat! Stagg and I bought some cds of Savoy Family and a video of "How To Cajun Dance".
A great little film above... with archival photos.If you have ten minutes it's really interesting! About 2 minutes into it are Marc and Ann Savoy.
The video above looks like it could have been made by Guy Maddin! :)
Savoy holds a degree in chemical engineering but his primary income is derived from his accordion-making business, based at his Savoy Music Center in Eunice, Louisiana. His wife is the singer and guitarist Ann Savoy, whom he met in 1975. He has performed with Dewey Balfa, D. L. Menard, and Michael Doucet, the latter of whom he plays with in the Savoy-Doucet Band.
