Berard Family Band
Note: Al Berard died Feb. 26, 2014, after suffering an aneurysm. He was 53 years old. His contribution to Cajun music and culture was immense. I photographed him many, many times playing with many different groups. The last time was with Forest Huval at the Liberty Theater Nov. 30, 2013. He was an excellent musician who brought joy and pleasure to everyone. He also had a kind, friendly, outgoing personality that brightened the lives of all around him. As depicted in these photos, his most important legacy is his wonderful family.
