My favorite cajun performer, and the one who really introduced me to cajun music, is Doug Kershaw. I have several of his albums on vinyl, including the amazing Alive and Pickin'. I have not had the pleasure to see him perform live, but Doug is famous for sometimes going through two bows in one song because of his furious playing. The rosin flying off the bow often makes the fiddle seem like it's smoking! I plan on buying Doug's new concert DVD sometime this month.
