The Festival of American Fiddle Tunes brings  Louisiana to the Pacific Northwest with a rare gathering of legendary musicians. This dance event should be memorable! We’re particularly honored that at 94 years young, Mr. Milton Vanicor will be part of the band. He played fiddle on some of Iry LeJeune’s classic recordings of the The Laccasine Playboys. They brought the accordion back to prominence after the war.
