The Cajun French Music Association (CFMA) presented its 2010 awards Friday, August 20, 2010 at the Cade Community Center in Cade, LA, southeast of Lafayette.  Many of the awards are thanks and congratulations, without any competition.  Here are the winners of the competitive awards:

Sheryl Cormier and Clarence “Junior” Martin, Jr. were inducted by members of the CFMA Hall of Fame.  And there was an Appreciation Award given to WWOZ 90.7 FM.  As the program says:  “WWOZ has had hours of Cajun Music programming on Sunday mornings for years.  Their DJ’s have played music which covers from the first recorded songs to the present day. WWOZ has promoted CFMA festivals and events in their programming along with other Cajun music functions.”  That’s us!  Listen Sundays from noon to 2:00 pm Central time.  I accepted the award on behalf of the station.

Saturday was a day-long music festival, with Geno Delafose and French Rockin’ Boogie, Chris Miller, Kevin Naquin & the Ossun Playboys, and High Performance.  Powerful!
