click his name to visit the Louisiana Hall Of Fame website

Cousin of the legendary Zydeco King Clifton Chenier, guitar playing Louisiana bluesman Roscoe has been inducted into the Louisiana Blues hall of fame.

Related to both zydeco demigod, Clifton Chenier, and bluesman Morris 'Big' Chenier, his father Arthur 'Bud' Chenier was his main inspiration. Bud, a cajun accordionist, accompanied by his first cousin and fiddler John Stevens, the father of Duke Stevens, was widely popular, as he often would entertain at weekend house parties. "As a youngster, I'd just soak up the music", Roscoe said.
