Shreveport: Road Through Northern Louisiana
series: Music Voyager
air date: 2/27/13 5:30 AM
Shreveport, a city with a rich musical history, counts among its myriad musical traditions the African-American sounds of the South, country music, Western swing, rockabilly that predated rock and roll, and the spicy influence of Cajun and Creole music. As guest host, rock star and blues guitar virtuoso Kenny Wayne Shepherd visits Lead Belly's grave for an acoustic jam with local icon Buddy Flett; introduces Maggie Warwick of the famed radio show, The Louisiana Hayride; enjoys a special performance on the stage where Elvis first tasted stardom; sits down with guitar legend James Burton for a demonstration of his pioneering guitar licks; and sits in on a grumble boogie party with the band Dirtfoot.
