On Nathan abshire

I never got to interview Nathan though I had a tape of an interview he did with Shirley Bergeron. Fortunately, Floyd Soileau offered to take me over to see Nathan’s wife, Olla. Olla took out her old photos and we had a great time talking. Secondly I interviewed Ernest Thibodeaux who started the original Pinegrove Boys and he talked about the early days of that band. Thirdly, Harry Lafleur splayed in the Pineleaf boys as a young boy and described those dancehall days.
