Milfred Simon at the Liberty Theater, March 22, 2014
Milfred Simon has played at the Liberty Theater before when he was accordionist and vocalist with Blackie Frugé and the Hicks Wagon Wheel Ramblers, but that was a long time ago. (This photo set includes a few photos from 2001, 2004, and 2006.) It was great to have him return to the Liberty March 22, 2014, backed by a band organized by Ganey Arsement. He performed before a good-sized crowd that responded warmly to the Cajun favorites he played. Standing near him on stage on guitar was his son, Mitch Simon, who, like his father, is an excellent vocalist. In addition to Ganey Arsement on bass, other members of the band were David Greely and Jason Frey on fiddle; Danny Cormier on steel guitar; and Victor Simon on drums. Pope Huval hosted the show.
