Cajun Fiddle Tunes for Two

This collection contains 31 traditional Cajun tunes plus three Deborah Greenblatt originals written in the Cajun style.

The tradition of this music dates back to 1624, when French immigrants arrived at what is now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, an area also known as “Acadia”. In 1755, the descendants of these settlers were exiled by the British. This “The Great Deportation”, or “Le Grand Derangement”, deported thousands of Acadians south to what is now the United States. The word “Acadien” was shortened to “Cadien”, and then became “Cajun”.

The notes, harmonies, and chords in this collection will get you started, but to truly capture the spicy flavor of these haunting tunes, you need to do a lot of listening.

Each Tunes for Two collection consists of individual spiral-bound duet books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath so you can play each tune by yourself or with others. The tunes are laid out so that there are no page turns to interrupt the flow of your playing. Duo arrangements of the tunes in this collection, in the same keys, are available for violins, violas, cellos, basses, and mandolins.

PDFs are available worldwide for each of the books in the Tunes for Two series.

Reviews...

“Most of my students are very attracted to rhythmic music and folk music, so I often use your duets and trios for fun reading sessions (though we have been missing these lately of course). Songs and dances are there in all we do, and I like the way this is a feature of so much of your music.”
- Viola Teacher

“The Cajun compilation covers many recognizable tunes that one may not immediately know the titles of. It is also very dance tune-heavy in content, which is expected of that culture. Like all of Greenblatt’s work, the text is easy to follow and includes chord progressions for guitar/piano accompaniment. Truly recommended for anyone interested in European culture influencing music in the US and Canada.”
...Matt Merta Fiddler Magazine, Spring 2021
