A little local color from the land of Bayou Fire. Enjoy!
New Orleans’ WDSU-TV Channel 8 aired this short (2:58) video recently with background on the rubboard used so much in zyeco music. It shows one being manufactured, in stop motion, by Tee-Don Landry. Landry claims it was his father who made the first one for Clifton Chenier’s brother Cleveland to play in the band. A transcription is included, if you’re having problems with Louisiana-accented English.
