Old Style Cajun Music

Old Style Cajun Music

Wade Frugé (1916–1992) was a full-time farmer and part-time fiddler in southwest Louisiana. He learned his traditional Cajun fiddle style from his grandfather and local musicians, and was discovered by accordion maker and musician Marc Savoy playing at local house parties in the 1970s. This collection contains Frugé’s only studio recording (tracks 1–15) as well as 10 additional selections recorded at Marc Savoy’s home over a 10-year period. The final selection, “Frugé Waltz,” is a fiddle duet with Beausoleil’s Michael Doucet.
