Fiddlers Denis McGee, Wallace "Cheese" Read, Canray Fontenot, accordionists Leopold Francois and Robert Jardell, are visited by musicians Jeanie McLerie and Dewey Balfa. Each one tells us stories about the role of music in his life and sings and plays one or more of his favorite songs. The late, great Denis McGee, Cheese Read and Canray Fontenot were all highly influential and often recorded Cajun musicians, in addition to being fiddle mentors for Jeanie, Ken and a host of younger musicians wanting to learn the style.

Cajun Visits is available on DVD from the filmmaker Yasha Aginsky and from Vestapol Videos .
