On Angelas LeJeune

Finding living relatives of Angelas LeJeune, one of my favorite early Cajun recording artists, was a bit tricky. I went to Church Point and I found his nephew Dewey LeJeune and his wife Carrie Miller who had photos of him. His nephew sang me the words to Angelas’ song La Valse A Tit Dam Hanks, later to become the classic Chère Alice.
