After a walk around the grounds at the 52nd Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival (see yesterday's entry), I found the Festival Stage--one of the three stages--to hear the four-time Grammy-Nominated Pine Leaf Boys. They "play the old fashion dance hall standards, while making a priority to bring many of the more obscure songs of past masters into their repertoire and play them with gusto."
"His impeccable thoughtful fiddling and soulful singing have made him one of the most sought-after Cajun fiddlers in the world."
Like so many of the musicians in Cajun Country, Wilson plays the fiddle and keyboard (shown here) and probably others.
And then there's Roddie Romero and the Hub City All-Stars.
I thought it was interesting that some people seemed to have anticipated the temperature and wore the prediction on their clothing.
But the performers continued on, warmed by the energy of the music.
Before leaving for the evening, we took a walk around the midway for a look at the lighted rides.
And in the smallest venue, we found Ray Abshire and friends playing some of the classics.
