The Ole Tymers Cajun Band from 2000, plus photos of Leo Abshire
When I uploaded some shots of August Broussard today, I discovered that I never uploaded a few lower resolution photos of the Ole Tymers Cajun Band from 2000, which included August Broussard on accordion, Leo Abshire on fiddle, Hubert Maitre on guitar, Rex Champagne on drums, and Jack LeBlanc on bass. Fred Charlie’s Acadiana Records released the band’s only CD in 2000. As I recall, the group didn’t continue for too long, but Leo Abshire (1933-2005) became leader of a reconstituted band, which I photographed in 2004. Check out the YouTube excerpt from “It’s In the Blood,” a documentary film about Leo Abshire: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQwi57XB9OQ
