Filmmaker Les Blank has made a name for himself in the world of documentary filmmaking with his "slice of life" stories. One of his favorite subjects is the Cajun culture of his home state of Louisiana. This documentary is such a film, featuring some of the great figures in Cajun music. The documentary showcases the talents and cultural heritage of legendary musician Bois Sec Ardoin, whose French name means "dry wood" in English. Also presented is a look at another Cajun giant, Canray Fontenot. The joie de vivre of Cajun culture shines through the dance tunes, and the accompanying food and laughter that have made this lifestyle famous.
