In Memoriam: Buckwheat Zydeco

The sad news comes from WWOZ New Orleans that Buckwheat Zydeco has passed away.
When I am writing, I get a little bit “method” and frequently listen to music that is related to the story.  For Bayou Fire, that’s meant zydeco, Cajun, traditional jazz, and even 1830s popular music.  Obviously, Buckwheat Zydeco, whose real name was Stanley Dural, was on the playlist.  Here’s a sample for you, in which he and Dwight Yoakam duet on a Hank Williams classic.
