Goldman Thibodeaux
in Plaisance, Aug. 31, 2002

High res photos of Goldman Thibodeaux now on Flickr
Goldman Thibodeaux was in great form on the heritage stage at the Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival in Plaisance, August 31, 2002.

Although no one can truly replace the late Calvin Carrière on fiddle, D'Jalma Garnier, who learned the Creole style from Canray Fontenot,  is the most accomplished Creole fiddler playing today.  Garnier in shown in the photo immediately below. The band has also lost guitarist James Latiolias, who died in a highway accident the month after Calvin Carrière's death.

The set ran for more than an hour, including an extended version of "Quo Faire" that lasted at least 10 minutes.

As of fall 2002, Goldman Thibodeaux and the Lawtell Playboys were planning to release another CD in the near future.
