Bruce Daigrepont is the leader of the Bruce Daigrepont Cajun Band. Bruce and his band, who perform Cajun and Zydeco music sung in traditional Louisiana Cajun French, have toured all over the world. Born in New Orleans, his Cajun family had migrated from rural Louisiana to the city during the Great Depression. Bruce's parents speak Cajun French, and his childhood home was full of the sounds and smells of traditional Cajun heritage. Bruce picked up his passion for music from his father, who taught him the guitar at5 years old. After attending the annual Festival Acadians et Créoles in Lafayette (1978), he was inspired and taught himself how to play the French accordion. Bruce performs traditional Cajun music, a homage to his heritage.
