#66 The Cajun Valentino: Jo-el Sonnier
"Tear Stained Letter"
by Jo-el Sonnier

Click the arrow for music


Jo-el is a Cajun button accordion virtuoso, and a bit of a cult figure. In the 1980s he took a stab at Nashville and released some great albums that produced a few hits, including the amazing "Tear Stained Letter" (listen above), written by Richard Thompson. However, I'm sure Jo-el is happier back in the bayou doing his thing.
