Nationally acclaimed storyteller J.J. Reneaux grew up Cajun for true, surrounded by stories, music, food, and culture of rural communities in southeast Texas and southeast Louisiana. A traditional storyteller who collects by word-of-mouth, Reneaux has developed her repertoire over years of collecting, from front porches to neighborhood gatherings.

J.J. Reneaux retells five Cajun tales. The stories are as fresh, vibrant and special as her storytelling style. Reneaux's delivery is sometimes sassy, sometimes hot as cayenne peppers, and sometimes sweet as sugar cane (just like Marie Jolie, the heroine of one of the stories). The tellings are enriched by the use of fiddle music to set the scene, extend the mood and punctuate the tales' surprising twists. The result is a flawless audio program and a terrific listening experience, especially for those who love rich Cajun lore. C.R.A. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner.
