ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deux Amis is a duo of accomplished multi-instrumentalists (and life partners!). Sam Politz (aka Driftin' Sam), a native of South Louisiana, plays and sings Cajun and zydeco music on both piano and button accordions. Sam's mother was French Creole, and he learned French by listening to her converse with his grandmother. Betsy Bronstein, originally from Missouri, is an accomplished cellist. After meeting Driftin' Sam, she decided to learn fiddle tunes and folk music on the violin. Sam suggested they learn some Cajun tunes, and "Deux Amis" was born.

This is music to dance to, so get out your dancing shoes! Take a journey back to the early days of Cajun music, when dances were played with only fiddle, accordion, and vocals. "Deux Amis" was recorded live, with no overdubs or corrections. The album includes some of our favorite Cajun classics as well as a few familiar songs that everyone is likely to recognize and enjoy.
