Ask Blair Kilpatrick Contest

Blair KilpatrickDo you have a question for Blair Kilpatrick, author of Accordion Dreams: A Journey into Cajun and Creole Music? Would you like to win a free, signed copy of her book? Read on!

Blair has kindly offered to answer a handful of questions from our readers about her story, her music, or whatever else sparks your curiosity. Just submit your question here before next Monday (January 26th) and we’ll forward your questions to Blair for her to answer in a future post. Then we’ll choose one lucky, random question-asker and they’ll receive a free, signed copy of her excellent new book.

In the meantime, Bay Area accordion aficionados can catch Blair at one of these upcoming author events:

In addition to a reading, book signing, and Q&A, these events will also include live Cajun-Creole music.


  1. How many accordions do you have? Which is your favorite and why?

  2. If you could have lunch with the accordion player of your choice, who would it be and why?

  3. If your husband was not already in the music / performance field, would you have had the same passion and devotion to accordion music?

  4. Great questions! I’ll have to send some more folks over here to take part.

    I just got my author copies yesterday. The book looks beautiful. University Press of Mississippi did a wonderful job, every step of the way.

    Looking forward to more probing questions :-)
