Joseph Falcon

Among the pioneers of Cajun music, Falcon made the very first commercial Cajun saving, “Lafayette” (“Allons…Lafayette”) along with his wife Cleoma in 1928. Cleoma’s basic acoustic guitar and emotive performing, powered by Joe’s crying accordion, was an instantaneous strike in Cajun nation, foisting a local stardom within the group, who documented for Columbia, Decca, Bluebird, and Okeh within the ’30s. Cleoma’s loss of life in 1941 and adjustments in listeners’ flavor (the accordion was out, the fiddle in) led Falcon from carrying out, though he and his second wife, Theresa, fronted a music group within the years before his loss of life. Falcon’s early recordings are one of the long lasting classics from the Cajun genre.
