Subject: Can anyone help?
From: Angie
Date: 17 Apr 02 - 01:52 PM

I used to own a version of The Lakes Of Ponchartrain which I have since lost and cannot replace because I can't remember the name of the artist.It was sung by a chap with a real cajun feel to it and was by far the best version of the song I have heard.I know it's a bit vague, but if anyone has any suggestions as to who it might be I'd be very gratefull.

Angie - you will get helpful responses if you put the title of the song in your thread name.
Maybe: Tune Request: Lakes Of Ponchartain.
If a Joe Clone is about, he can make the change for you.
Good luck with your search.
Mary

Peter Case, Martin Simpson and Andy Stewart have all recorded it. Do any of these names ring a bell?

And so did Paul Brady, and maybe I think that's the best. But the only cajun version I've heard is Martin Simpson's, and I don't much like that one.

No it's definately not Martin Simpson (I don't like that one either), it's quite a soft slow version of the song and sung with real empathy......I really hate myself for not remembering who it is,I have the mind of a sieve and I'm sure you would all love it. Oh well,the quest continues.

Angie, are you sure of the title? There is a song done by Glenn Weiser And Greg Schaaf called "The Shores of Ponchartrain" that might be what you're seeking.

Love, Annamill

One good source for finding out who did what is AMG – The All Music Guide.

Another is the Folk Music Index.
