The Hackberry Ramblers are shown performing on a warm Sunday afternoon at Lafayette's Festival International de Louisiane in April 2000. Luderin Darbone is on fiddle, Edwin Duhon (age 90) is playing accordion, Glen Croker is on guitar, and the late Johnny Faulk (1925-2004) is plucking the bass with his trademark American flag waving proudly atop the neck . The youngest member of the group, Ben Sandmel, played drums.
