This Saturday, April 26, the weekly “Rendez-vous des Cajuns” Music Show at the Liberty Theater will feature accordionist Paul Daigle and Cajun Gold.
Daigle, who was born in 1958, is a native of Point Noir near Church Point. As a teenager, he won accordion contests in Church Point, later teaming with Robert Elkins of Church Point, a rhthym guitarist, to form Cajun Gold.
In August of 2009, Daigle won Accordionist of the Year and Band of the Year at the Cajun French Music Association’s 21st Annual Le Cajun Music Awards. His CD “3 Daigles and a Huval” won Best CD and the coveted People’s Choice Award.
The “Rendez-vous des Cajuns” show is performed live every Saturday night at the historic Liberty Theater, 200 W. Park Ave. in Eunice, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Best described as the “Cajun Grand Ol’ Opry,” the family-friendly show features an emcee who hosts the show in Cajun French and a dance floor where people can dance to the music of Cajun bands performing live in the restored 1924 vaudeville house.
Tickets are $5 for general admission seating and go on sale at 4 p.m. at the ticket window of the Liberty Theater.
