Doug Kershaw Ameri-Cajun glossary and pheonetics. Classic cajun fiddle, old-school but rethrift.

Doug Kershaw, born January 24, 1936, is an American fiddle player, singer and songwriter from Louisiana. Active since 1949, Kershaw has recorded fifteen albums and charted on the Hot Country Songs charts.    After fulfilling his military obligation, the two brothers recorded “Louisiana Man”, an autobiographical song that Doug had written while in the Army. The song not only sold millions of copies but over the years has come to be considered a standard of modern Cajun music.[3] The song was eventually covered by more than 800 artists.    There were three albums released by the duo on Hickory records, only one being released before they split up. The first was Rusty and Doug Sing Louisiana Man (LPM 103) in 1961. Kershaw (Genus Cambarus) (LPS 163) was released in 1972 and was a double LP. Louisiana Man (HR 4506) was the final Hickory album, released in 1974. By 1964, the brothers had elected to go their separate ways. It took another three years before Kershaw signed a songwriters’ contract with BMI, in 1967.
