Doug Kershaw is so Cajun that he didn’t even learn to speak English until he was three. It wouldn’t matter if he ever did pick up the language, however, since the Cameron Parish product is easily one of Cajun music’s bonafide stars. Witness living history when the 83-year-old fiddler and songwriter headlines Skipper’s alongside fellow Cajun music star Jo-el Sonnier.

Doug Kershaw w/Jo-El Sonnier/The Cadillac Cowboys. Fri. Sept. 13, 8 p.m. $25-$30. Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa. skipperssmokehouse.com.
