Louisiana Music Icon Buckwheat Zydeco Dies At 68
Buckwheat Zydeco
Louisiana music treasure and virtuso accordionist Stanley Dural, Jr.—you probably know him as Buckwheat Zydeco—died of lung cancer in his hometown of Lafayette, LA on Saturday, September 24. He was 68.

Dural was a bonafide ambassador of Louisiana’s rich musical tradition, garnering both Grammy and Emmy awards, and collaborating with artists like Eric Clapton, U2 and The Boston Pops. His band—also called Buckwheat Zydeco—performed at the closing ceremony of the 1996 Summer Olympics, as well as at both of former President Bill Clinton’s inaugurations.
