Cajun music pioneer Edwin Duhon died on Sunday (26FEB06). He was 95.

Duhon formed the Louisiana group The Hackberry Ramblers with fiddler Luderin Darbone in 1933, which went on to become the longest-running band in the US.

In 2002, the duo received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment For The Arts.

Duhon said at the time, "Luderin claims he organised The Hackberry Ramblers, but I'm the one that started it.

"He's like a brother, so I don't want to take him to court."
