Mardi Gras is a week away.  Best thing about Mardi Gras to me is a two day vacation.  But I avoid the crowds and the mess of all the parades and foolishness.

But I do like this traditional Cajun Mardi Gras song done by the Balfa Brothers, all deceased now, but the band quite a force in the world-wide popularity of Cajun music on the folk scene in the 60’s and 70’s.  Cajun-style Mardi Gras doesn’t get any more traditional than this!
