Felton LeJeune and the Cajun Cowboys

Felton LeJeune died July 5, 2011, at the age of 61. Even after he became ill, he continued to perform traditional Cajun dancehall music that everyone loved. At his last performance at the Liberty Theater about a year ago, he was seated for part of the show, but eventually, urged on by the crowd, he stood up in a characteristic stance, leaning forward and adding his own physical energy to the power of the music. At the end of the show, the crowd gave him a sustained standing ovation. He will be missed by music lovers and dancers throughout Southwest Louisiana.
