Luderin Darbone Interview

Luderin was the most delicate and practicing Christian of the people I interviewed. And could he play the swing fiddle! So humble…The Hackberry Ramblers were, in their heyday, the young, “with it” band in Louisiana. They brought so many songs to the dancehalls, American songs translated into French, lots of creative ideas. I recorded his interview at his house in Hackberry, LA.
