Doug Kershaw to Headline Frolics

Doug Kershaw was born in 1936 and raised in a musical family on a houseboat near Louisiana’s Calcasieu River, which makes him the real deal on being Cajun. The lyrics that he wrote to Louisiana Man were autobiographical and happened to be the first song ever broadcast back to earth from the moon during the 1969 Apollo 12 Mission. From an alligator-filled swamp to the barren lunar surface, that’s quite a reach for any song.

Howdy, Texas music fans! Great thing about music is that you can listen to it anywhere! But we miss our dancing community and hope we will be scootin’ our boots and kickin’ up our heels in dance halls, festival pavilions, and church picnic fields soon!
