Through the Back Door: The Music That Bridged the Bayou

Dolores Hydock, a member of the Alabama Humanities Foundation's Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, will present "Through the Back Door: The Music That Bridged the Bayou" on Thursday, March 6, at 10 a.m. This program describes the history of Cajun music over the past 150 years. It also paints a portrait of Cajun and Creole music and musicians, and the role that music played in allowing non-Cajuns to slip "through the back door" into the world of the spirited people of southwest Louisiana. Hydock's presentation includes stories by Cajun and Creole musicians, and a discussion of zydeco music and how it developed in southwest Louisiana. Samples of the music are played throughout the presentation. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
