On 15 November 1993 the Center for Popular Music, the Fine Arts Department
and the Photographic Gallery of Middle Tennessee State University sponsored
three events on Cajun and Zydeco music to complement an exhibit of photographs
by Philip Gould mounted by the gallery in the Learning Resources Center.
The events were a lecture on the photographs by Philip Gould; a lecture
on the history of Cajun music by musicologist Ann Savoy; and a fais do
do including traditional Cajun food and performances by the Abe Manuel
Band of Milton Tennessee and the Savoy-Doucet Band of Eunice Louisiana.
Emmylou Harris, who attended the event, performed with the Savoy-Doucet
band during one song.
Scope and content:
This group consists of an analog cassette tape of the Savoy lecture; three digital cassette tapes and three analog reel-to-reel tapes of the fais do do; 163 photographs of the lecture and fais do do; and 3 posters advertising the events.
The audio tapes logs which follow list all of the songs performed by
each band at the fais do do. The photograph log sheets filed with the photographs
identify the individuals in each photograph.
These audio tapes are filed first by format, then by tape number in
the audiovisual archives. The photographs are filed in the subject photograph
file under Cajun Music and Zydeco. A small print-only poster is filed in
the subject vertical file under M.T.S.U.-Center for Popular Music. Two
large posters including a photograph of Marc Savoy autographed by members
of the Savoy-Doucet band are hung in the Center.
Administrative records related to the events are part of the Center
for Popular Music records.
