Cross and Alternate Cajun & Creole
Fiddle Breakdown Series
When you go to Cajun jams nowadays you usually tune your fiddle down and leave it that way. But in the old days, fiddle players would tune differently, for different tunes. Much like Appalachia, Cajuns used cross tunings and these are a few of those tunes.

Though Cajuns and Creoles are rich in culture, they are historically marginalized and impoverished communities.
Since 2008, Mitch Reed Fiddle Lessons has offered scholarships to students in need, and with the help of patrons from all over the world, has been able to offer free instruction to students who otherwise would not be able to afford lessons or instruments.
If Cajun or Creole music has been like a gift to you, consider paying it forward and helping to keep a culture alive and thriving.
