HEART ATTACK FELLS ONE OF FEW REMAINING AUTHENTIC DANCE-HALL STYLISTS.

 Eddie LeJeune died Tuesday following a heart attack. He was 49.

Born in Ardoin Cove, Louisiana, in 1951, Eddie LeJeune was the son of the legendary Iry LeJeune, whose accordion style and repertoire permeated the French-language music performed by the Louisiana descendents of Acadiana in Canada. Like his father, Eddie LeJeune was an intensely emotional performer, one of the last to emerge from the traditional Cajun circuit of house parties and dances.
