Herman Fusilier

Herman Fusilier Is The Hardest Working Man In Zydeco (Without An Accordion!)

Our guest here to tell the story of zydeco as part of our Sense of Place visit is THE man about zydeco in Lafayette Louisiana, Herman Fusilier. He hosts The Zydeco Stomp on KRVS radio and is the food and culture editor of the Lafayette newspaper The Daily Advertiser. How healthy is zydeco with the younger generation? What are the different styles within zydeco? And once and for all what separates Cajun and zydeco music? We ask Herman.
