D.L Menard has passed away and our hearts are broken. The legend from Erath, Louisiana died yesterday Thursday July 28th 2017. Born as Doris Leon Menard to Ophy and Helena Primeaux Menard in 1932 in Vermillion Parish, the lanky country man commanded stages around the globe, and brought Cajun string band music to millions of listeners. We wrote a piece on the great man barely one month ago.
Rest in peace Mr Menard.
