Fiddler and singer Doug Kershaw has resigned as director of the Greeley-Evans [Colorado] Weld County School District 6 Board of Education.  Don’t know quite what to make of this story.  I can’t say I’m surprised that Kershaw doesn’t live in Louisiana.  He doesn’t perform here often or show up for public events.  And it does get hot here, so living in a cooler climate is understandable.  And it’s great that the fiddler has involved himself in community life.  As the article says:

“I had dropped everything and was ignoring my family,” he said. “I need to finish my album, and I have a bunch of concerts planned in September.”

Being a Ragin’ Cajun takes up a lot of time!
