Eunice native Dennis (Denus) McGee was one of the earliest recorded Cajun musicians. McGee played the fiddle and recorded and he recorded and performed with Creole accordionist and vocalist Amédé Ardoin, known for his high singing voice and unmatched skill with the Creole/Cajun accordion.
Both McGee and Ardoin were instrumental in laying the foundation for Cajun music in the early 20th century. Denus’ son, Gerry McGee, has created a film about his father’s collaborations with Amede Ardoin. Watch the second trailer for the forthcoming film above.
