Masters of French-Canadian Music, Vol. 2

Self-taught musician Alfred Montmarquette began learning the accordion at the age of twelve. In adulthood, he recorded for Columbia and other companies, performed for variety shows at the Monument National in Montréal, and reportedly stopped traffic with his playing at city market days! His lively, agile style endures on the 78rpm recordings presented here.
