Phil Teer: Scojun: how Scotland never invented Cajun music | Culture Scotland |

Dick Gaughan, on the sleeve notes of his album Handful of Earth, wrote that Scojun Waltz was "an attempt to prove that cajun music originated in Leith." When I read that as a 16 year old back in the 80's I thought it might be true. My mate Andy, who knew a lot about folk music, told me it was a joke. I felt a bit stupid at the time and let it go.
