Doug Kershaw: Crazy Cajun Fiddler

Danny Goldberg, Circus, April 1970

DOUG KERSHAW, before his current tour was primarily known as "the guy who was on the Johnny Cash Show the same night that Dylan was on." It is definitely impressive that a performer could stand out on a show with such acts as Cash and Dylan but the impact and talent of Doug Kershaw goes far beyond his television presence.
