This felt like the start of a ‘road’ tradition.

The Cajun Country of Louisiana, the Cajun Triangle:  Acadia, Evangeline and St Landry Parishes are someplace to which we seem to return.  A different culture in an America, and during a time, that tends to  homogenize culture. Good and distinctive food, music and dance played with pride, a common history and one’s own language.

Lots of parallels with the Quebecois of Quebec!

Kevin Naquin and the Ossun Playboys livened up the well restored Liberty Theater in Eunice, Louisiana for the live recording of the Rendezvous des Cajuns . (Ossun being a small unincorporated town in Lafayette Parish named after a village in France.)  Kevin and the night’s emcee Pete Bergeron traded reminisces. Kevin talked of a grandfather who looked after him in his youth and  brought out the accordion playing gift in his young grandson.

Rendezvous des Cajuns: Every Saturday evening 6:00 – 7:30 PM live Cajun music and two-step dancers congregate at the Liberty Theater in Eunice to celebrate themselves and the ‘joie de vivre’ that is part of their culture.

After the show I asked Pete Bergeron about accessing the stage in the future for better images. He referred me to the secretary at the Eunice mayor’s office;  the beauty and simplicity of small town America.

Back to the ‘road tradition’. We have attended the live music performance of Rendezvous des Cajuns at the Liberty Theater and had dinner afterwards across the way and down a bit at Nick’s On 2nd Street two years running now. After a run on their boiled crawfish earlier in the evening Nick’s served us up grilled spiced shrimp and a grilled tuna steak.

C’est bon!
