2017 Master Artist and Cajun Accordionist Jude Moreau will be holding a CD release party with his group, The Bon Temps Playboys, for their new album, Le Deux Violins at the Pinetree Lodge on Thursday, September 7, 2017 in Beaumont, Texas.

As a 2012 Cajun Music Hall of Fame inductee with almost 40 years’ experience playing accordion, Mr. Moreau is not only a master performer, but a Cajun music teacher and accordion builder. With decades of experience in multiple crafts, it is no surprise that Mr. Moreau is in constant demand as a performer, teacher, and builder. Most importantly, Mr. Moreau is dedicated to his Cajun roots and proudly lives life according to “The Cajun Way.”

As a 2017 Apprenticeship in the Folk & Traditional Arts Award Recipient, the event will also showcase the amazing talents of Mr. Moreau’s apprentice, Bridget Roberts. Like Mr. Moreau, Ms. Roberts is equally proud of her Cajun heritage; as the queen for multiple Cajun French Music Assocations over several years, Ms. Roberts has tirelessly worked to promote Cajun heritage across the state and beyond. Under the direction of Mr. Moreau, Ms. Roberts has continued to improve her abilities on the Cajun accordion and, eventually, begin teaching aspiring Cajun accordionists.

This event will feature the amazing musical talents of Mr. Moreau and The Bon Temps Playboys, as well as an appearance by Ms. Roberts on Cajun accordion. Don’t miss out on this amazing event in Beaumont!
