The Essential Adam Hebert Cajun Music Collection is a nearly exhaustive collection of Adam’s recordings on Swallow Records. Many of his songs are considered classics today, having been recorded and performed by most other legendary Cajun musicians as well as today’s active Cajun bands. 73 minutes of music.

Adam Hebert was born near Church Point, Louisiana on August 23, 1923 and grew up amidst traditional Cajun and country music. At the age of four he was dancing for tips and by the fourth grade was singing Jimmie Rodgers songs for his fellow classmates. After realizing he had a talent to share, Adam built his first fiddle out of an old chocolate box and screen wire. His bow was strung with horsehair from the tail of the family mare.

By thirteen he had abandoned his homemade instrument for a Montgomery Ward fiddle and began playing with accordion player Felton Carriere. They played house dances and introduced the accordion to local dance halls. After a stint in the army Adam continued to play with various bands and made appearances in clubs and radio stations throughout Louisiana.

In the 1950s, he formed Adam Hebert and The Country Playboys and recorded for Swallow Records from 1959-1973.

His hit title “La Valse de Ma Cherie” was used in the soundtrack of the 1975 Charles Bronson movie, “Hard Times.”

Mr. Hebert passed away October 11, 2010, after being in failing health for a number of years, but his music will live on forever. With a timeless repertoire including hits such as “Madeleine,” “La pointe aux pins,” “Le moulin,” “Cette la moi j’aime est comme un ‘tit oiseau,” and many, many more, his songs have been – and will continue to be – played by nearly every other Cajun band out there.
