ABOUT THE HUVAL-FUSILIER CAJUN TRIO
Luke and Philip Huval and Zach Fuselier represent the next generation of talented teenage Cajun musicians. Each has already gained notoriety in family bands and professional situations — Luke and Phillip sharing the stage with father Terry’s Jambalaya Cajun Band, and Zach Fuselier with Joe Hall’s Louisiana Cane Cutters. Together they form a formidable quartet that has already played the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Festival International in Lafayette, Louisiana, and out-of-state events in Canada and Wisconsin.
In 2014, they recorded a very traditional album with fellow musician Cameron Dupuy showing that the group is well rooted in the core of Cajun music, as noted by its renditions of such cherished favorites as “Les Petits Yeux Bleus” and “Reno Waltz,” and popping instrumentals “Ossun Two-Step” and “Hick’s Wagon Wheel Special.”
ABOUT HERB AND DOROTHY
He was a postal clerk. She was a librarian. With their modest means, the couple managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history, including works by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, photographers Cindy Sherman and Lorna Simpson, minimalist Robert Mangold, and post-minimalist Richard Tuttle. Meet Herb and Dorothy Vogel, whose shared passion and discipline have defied stereotypes and redefined what it means to be an art collector.
