Murphy “Chuck” Guillory Interview

Chuck was a regular a Marc’s Savoy Music Center Saturday morning jam session. He was from Mamou and had composed or made famous some of the Cajun hits like Tolan Waltz, Grand Mamou, and The Last Waltz. He also said he trained Jimmy C Newman to play guitar and sing in a band! He was a good friend and I hired him to play at the Liberty Theater Le Rendez Vous des Cajuns in Eunice (which I booked for fifteen years) and all the local festivals in which I was involved in the early 1980’s.
