The Cajun French Music Association will give out its Le Cajun Awards Aug. 18 and 19, 2011. The night of Aug. 18 will be at La Poussiere (“the dust”), a Cajun dance hall in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. The French speaking and chapter awards will be presented that evening. The main award ceremony will be the next day at the Cade Community Center, just south of Lafayette, LA. The doors will open at 5:30 pm and the music starts at 7 pm. Saturday is the big all-day dance, also at the Cade Community Center. Geno Delafose starts it off at 10 am, Paul Daigle & Cajun Gold with Jason Frey at 3 and Jackie Caillier, Ivy Dugas and the Cajun Cousins with Walter Mouton at 6:15 pm. Between Geno and Paul there’s a group or event listed as “Le Jeune Generation de Cajun” (the young Cajun generation). And “No Ice Chests.” Have fun and somebody send me the list of winners.
