Marc Savoy labels himself a "crusader" for Cajun culture and, as such, is ranked at the top of the revivalists who followed the Balfa Brothers' example and championed pure Cajun music. Savoy's dedication to the music includes building Cajun accordions at his workship in Eunice, LA, as well as playing the music and discussing its background at festivals around the world. He and his wife Ann (singer and guitarist with the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band and author of the excellent -Cajun Music: A Reflection of a People) were the subject of Les Blank's PBS documentary, #Marc and Ann. In September 1992, Savoy received the prestigious Heritage Award from the National Endowment for the Arts. ~ Mark A. Humphrey, Rovi
