BATON ROUGE BLUES FESTIVAL

EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH BATON ROUGE BLUES FESTIVAL

LABOR DAY LIVE AT THE BATON ROUGE BLUES FESTIVAL

The long-running Baton Rouge Blues Festival draws on the Louisiana capital's definitive musical legacy. This Labor Day, we play live cuts from BRBF's 2018 festivities: The late harmonica man and singer Lazy Lester revisits the R&B singles he released on Excello Records in the '50s and '60s. Guitarist Jimmy "Duck" Holmes plays Bentonia-style blues, which he learned growing up in Mississippi around the family juke joint. Fellow Mississippian Harmonica Bean talks the blues and plays his mouth harp. Cowboy Stew Blues Revue -- a supergroup of Lafayette, LA-musicians including blues rocker C.C. Adcock, Cajun accordionist Steve Riley, and guitarist Lil Buck Sinegal of late Zydeco King Clifton Chenier's band -- prove they are more than the sum of their parts. British R&B soul band James Hunter Six roll out club style with great elan. Grammy-winner and son of local legend Tabby Thomas, Chris Thomas King taps into his deep musical roots on blues classics and gospel standards. And younger generation guitarists Troy Turner and Samantha Fish show off their blues chops with inflections of pop and rock.
