Musicians North America has contributed distinctive forms to the world of music. Two of these, Cajun and Bluegrass are emblematic of their US regions. Cajun music, emblematic of Louisiana, is rooted in the ballads the French speaking Acadians expelled from Canada. Bluegrass, emblematic of the Appalachians has it roots in Irish, English, and Scottish ballads and dance blended with Afro-American blues and jazz. These images were captured at jam sessions, Cajun at the Savoy Music Center at Eunice Louisiana, and the Blue Ridge Mountain Music Centre.
