Ganey Arsement Le Forgeron
Release Date: July 30, 2013
Label: Salty Bayou
Born and raised in Lake Charles, LA, you might think that Cajun singer, songwriter, and accordion player Ganey Arsement makes his music on the fringes of Cajun country. Actually, Lake Charles is more of a crossroads, a meeting point between the honky-tonks of East Texas, and the Cajun dancehalls of Southwest Louisiana.
As a result, Ganey slips as easily between the cranking heat of the Cajun accordion and the electric twang of East Texas country and electric blues. From the crossroads of some of the most musically fertile land in America, this is pure Americana.
