    Bringing Amédé Home

    Bringing Amédé Home is a symbolic ceremonial event for an iconic Louisiana musician, Amédé Ardoin. The ceremony will feature a candlelit Remembrance Vigil, a Bal du Dimanche après-midi (Sunday afternoon house dance), and the unveiling of a forged steel statue of the legendary accordionist, made by sculptural artist, Russell Whiting. 

    Folk artists, musicians, and relatives of Amédé Ardoin have committed to participating in the March 11th event. Local music expert, Herman Fuselier, will be the Master of Ceremonies, and microbrewer, Bayou Teche Brewing will commemorate the event with a keg of craft beer. Guests will also be introduced to the artist, Russell Whiting. Many surprises are in store for the afternoon, but participants are encouraged to also use this event as an opportunity for reflection. 

    Ardoin was one of the earliest musicians to record his la la style of Creole music in the 20s and 30s and is widely regarded as the bedrock of today’s Cajun and Creole music. A racial assault following a performance resulted in a brain stem injury and is generally thought to be the cause of his death. Inspired by the Ardoin family’s efforts to “bring him home” from his burial place in an unmarked grave at the Central Louisiana Hospital in Pineville, the Amédé Ardoin Project Committee formed with the purpose of symbolically bringing him home through this public memorial. 

    Bringing Amédé Home will take place at the statue's permanent location, the St. Landry Parish Visitor Center in Opelousas, Louisiana, located on Interstate 49 at Exit 23. 

    Post-event, The Amédé Ardoin Project Committee will continue their efforts with an environmental project and a Louisiana music education initiative. For more information about the Committee please call, 337-351- 4406. 

    For more information about Bringing Amédé Home, please call The St. Landry Parish Tourist Commission (SLPTC) at 337-948-8004. For a media contact, please ask for Caitlin Bussey.

    SLPTC is the official destination marketing organization tasked with the purpose of promoting tourism in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana.
