Biography

Wade Fruge was one of the last of the great old timey Cajun fiddlers. Known for his delicate grace notes, piercing chords and powerful bowing, Fruge combined soulful playing with highly-skilled articulation. Although never a full-time musician, Fruge's love of music gave his playing a rarely-heard emotional depth. Much of Fruge's repertoire was inherited from his grandfather, Napoleon Fruge, and blues-tinged fiddler, Douglas Ballard, who also taught Canray Fontenot. The complete set of twenty five tracks that he recorded during his lifetime were compiled on the album, Old Style Cajun Music, featuring guest musicians Michael Doucet and Marc and Ann Savoy.
