Vin Bruce

My new favorite musician is Vin Bruce (1932–), the "King of Cajun Singers," from Cut Off, Louisiana, son of a trapper and fisherman who played fiddle at local Cajun dances. (Er)Vin Bruce was one of the first Cajuns to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

His French version of Hank Thompson's "Wild Side of Life" is pretty crazy but mostly I listen to waltzes and songs like "Fille de la Ville" and "Jolie Fille," full of accordion, fiddling, good beats, & catchy melodies.
