On Sidney Brown

Sidney Brown and Joel Sonnier

Sidney Brown was not only one of the first people to recreate the diatonic Cajun accordion in southwest Louisiana but had a very popular band in the Lake Charles area. The only person I could find to interview about him was he wife and she wasn’t very enthusiastic about his music career but was proud of his accordion building.
