Quick Links: August 3, 2007

Today’s links share a Cajun theme…

  • Big Bayou Bandits: Fille De Houma
    Video clip of the Big Bayou Bandits, a fun Cajun band from Belgium (!) that melds Cajun, bluegrass, and rockabilly. (Found via Mister Anchovy)
  • Cajun/Creole Accordion Builders
    A project from the creator of the Cajun Squeezebox Blog — a list of Cajun accordion builders both past and present, with contact information.
  • Zydeco Vets Host Grammy Awards 101
    The Memphis chapter of the Recording Academy (including Terrance and Cynthia Simien) is holding a presentation in Vermilionville, LA for artists interested in joining the Academy and participating in the Grammy voting process. The event isn’t limited to Cajun/Zydeco, but I imagine anyone interested in the new Cajun/Zydeco Grammy category will want to attend.


  1. Just found your web site & was shocked to read about Bobby Jones. What is the latest on Bobby? Had the pleasure of meeting Bobby in Belton in the early 1990’s

  2. Marty, last I heard (a couple weeks ago) was that they were still waiting for the water level in the river to go down so they can send in divers to search for his truck. I haven’t heard anything since then, though.
