Caesar Vincent: Presented by Folklorist, Dr. Barry Ancelet

 In Uncategorized

Vermilion Historical Society presents the fascinating life and music of one of Vermilion Parish’s musical characters, Caesar Vincent, by distinguished folklorist, Dr. Barry Ancelet. Dr. Ancelet describes how Caesar’s peculiar knowledge and spontaneous performances of old French songs (some dating back to the Middle Ages) changed modern French music and gave us a window into the long lost past. Dr. Ancelet also discusses how he put together popular South Louisiana musicians to reinterpret Ceasar’s versions of these songs in an award winning album, “Travailler C’est Trop Dur: The Lyrical Legacy of Caesar Vincent”.
